Compfight - a Flickr search tool
While browsing my daily e-mail from Diigo.com, I came across a site shared to the AT in SPED group, Compfight. Compfight calls itself a flickr search tool, and it is. Put in a search term and it immediately pulls up a page full of pictures that have been tagged with that word. It has several features that make is extremely useful for educators and their classrooms. You can turn on the Creative Commons only search feature (a simple click at the top). Creative Common photos are free to use as long as you give credit to the author/photographer. You can also turn on safe search to help keep out the wrong kind of photos.
The interface is simple, the searching easy, it is easily one of the best photo search sites available today. Check out Compfight.
