  • Welcome to this presentation. Let me start off by telling you a little about myself and how this presentation came about. I have been teaching for four years in the Creighton School District in Phoenix at Excelencia School. As I was growing up I learned about technology in two different settings. I learned about it at school with apple computers and then Macintosh computers. At home I was learning how to work on what was then IBM compatible and now are called PC’s. While in school I continued learning more and more then once I became a teacher I sought to integrate my teaching with technology. I taught fifth grade for three years and now I teach in our school’s technology lab first through eighth grade students. One area I kept hearing from our teachers and staff was there is a need to put pictures with the instructions or with other words to help our students learn better. Most of our students are second language learners so this really helps them, plus it also hits on the visual intelligence described by Howard Gardner. The teachers and staff were drawing pictures by hand or going out to the stores and buying clipart cd’s so they would have the pictures to help with their instruction. This can be very expensive, so I told the staff there is an easier way to find clipart without going broke. It is called using the internet and knowing where to find free pictures, graphics and clipart. This is how I came to do this presentation.


  • 1. Finding and Using Clipart to aid in your instruction Presented by Jason and Karen Schnee Excelencia School, Phoenix, AZ 2005
  • 2. Objective
    • To add graphics, clipart, and pictures to existing documents in order to enhance the learning of students with the use of visuals.
  • 3. Visuals
    • Who should add visuals to their writings?
    • Everyone! The use of visuals will not inhibit your students’ learning, but will only enhance it.
    • Teachers of English Language Learners
  • 4. Using existing clipart and graphics
    • Within most programs such as any of the Microsoft products or Appleworks there is a clipart gallery you are able to choose from.
    • This is a great place to start and most of us already know this. The libraries within these programs can be limited.
  • 5. Extensions of pictures
    • For those of you who aren’t familiar with the extensions that follow a file there is a distinction between them.
    • The most common picture files are:
      • .jpg--Joint Photographic Experts Group
      • .gif--Graphics Interchange Format
  • 6. Locating Other Sources of Clipart
    • Clipart CDs are an option for finding other sources of clipart not in your programs library.
    • There are websites devoted to providing images for a price and also sites which are copyrighted.
    • There are also websites which offer free clipart, pictures or graphics with no catch.
  • 7. Copyright Issues
    • How do you know if an image is copyrighted or not?
    • Check the page you are on and see if there is a copyright notice on it.
    • If the image is copyrighted then you should request permission from the publisher to use it.
