In a lot of the curriculum and professional development work we’re doing, I find myself looking for diverse images of the educational world. Whether it’s teachers, students, parents, a good photo can help increase user attention and engagement.
Here’s the thing: It’s remarkable how difficult it is to find educational images that represent the diversity of our country’s educational population, that aren’t behind expensive subscription services. It took Jim Wagner and I a half hour trying to find an image of a diverse group of teachers talking before we finally found one.
I don’t have a solution, but I wonder, could we crowd source this type of thing at District 287?
(I know we run into student release issues with the student side of things, but we have many students who have provided releases.)
