Search for Free Use Images Inside Google Drive

One of the many tools Google provides to help students understand Digital Citizenship and copyright is the Insert Image Search feature. Students can search from one of three image databases (Google, LIFE, and Stock Images) all of which show images that are labeled for commercial reuse with modification. This is a great feature to teach students that not everything on the internet is available for them to use. One downside to this feature is that it does not automatically cite the image like in the Research tool. However, the link where the image is found is provided for the student to manually copy and paste it into their works cited.

Steps
