My Updated Guide to Finding Media for Classroom Projects

Two Sundays ago my Practical Ed Tech Newsletter was all about finding pictures, videos, and sounds for classroom projects. As a part of that newsletter I included my updated guide to finding media for classroom projects. 

In my guide to finding media for classroom projects I provide overviews of my favorite places for students and teachers to find image, video, and audio files that can be downloaded and re-used for free without violating copyright.
