Free Set of 10 Academic Icons

I rarely use clipart, but I do use it I try to find some that doesn't scream, "1998 PowerPoint!" Smashing Magazine is one place that I will turn to in a search for clipart and design advice in general. Earlier this week Smashing Magazine and Pixels Daily released a free set of ten academic icons. The icons can be used, re-used, and modified under a Creative Commons license. The icons are 128px.

Applications for Education
Take a look a the Smashing Magazine academic icons if you're looking for some free icons to use on your classroom blog, school website, or just to use on some school flyers.

Icon Bug - Free Icons and Clip Art

Icon Bug is a collection of more than 10,000 icons and pieces of clip art that can be downloaded and re-used for free. The Icon Bug search engine allows you to search by keyword, browse popular icon categories, and refine searches according to icon size. Registered users can upload their own icons to contribute to the gallery.

Applications for Education
If your students need some clip art icons to use in presentations, in blog posts, or in another medium Icon Bug could be a good place to find the icons they need. Just remind students that even though the icons are free to use, most of the icon contributors do request attribution.
