Choosing Quality Media Resources

Purchase for $55.00 (AUD) incl. GST

Are the images adding educational value or just decoration?

A picture says 1000 words – or so the saying goes.  So – what stories are the images you’re using in your classroom telling your students?

With stock photography being cheap and readily available – it’s easy to search for your chosen topic, select the first few pictures and you’re done.  But – it’s worth taking the time to look a little deeper at what messages your images are sending and how they add to the learning experience.

  • Are your images engaging or distracting?
  • Are the images adding educational value or just decoration?
  • Are the images diverse and make your students feel seen, welcomed and included?
  • Are they from a reliable source you have the right to use in your teaching?

This colourful session will look at images for teaching resources, giving you a set of tools to evaluate your images to ensure you are maintaining a level of educational value in the courses you are developing and delivering.
