The first collection is of Educational Tools. The images in this collection are ones that can be directly used as teaching aids. These are not simply pictures of things that could be taught about, but these images convey specific teachable information. The images generally show that information by showing a single concept several different ways, by using labels, or are part of a group of images that together teach a concept. Examples of the types of images already included are: medical diagrams, chemistry illustrations, musical theory, and introductions to languages.
The second collection is of Stuffed Animals Interacting with the World. These images all show stuffed animals using human tools, playing with objects, or acting in a way that a human might. Examples of images already included are: bandaged teddy bears, stuffed lambs playing with boxes, teddy bears using technology, and stuffed animals exercising. So far, I have found a lot of images of teddy bears. These are great, but I would also like to include more of other types of stuffed animals.
If you have suggestions for either collection, please post them below.
Brad, I just saw your comment (I've not been on the site much in the last couple of months). Do you have any math images that show what the formula is and means? Students often memorize formula with no connection to what it means in reality. Students are simply told that a triangle's area can be found by multiplying the size of the base times the height and dividing by two. They aren't shown how it really is simply half of a rectangle (though perhaps it's been moved around a bit). If we could show these (and more complex) formulae graphically, we could have some very powerful teaching aides. Thanks.
