EFL WEB EXPLORER: Free pictures and Power Point templates

Following my English course on web 2.0. some people seemed interested in sites where they could get free pictures and resources for their class blogs. We were speaking about Creative Commons and waht you could do with the sites which have this licence.

I showed them the way to get free pictures, using Flicker.

Another nice place for Primary school teachers is Pete’s Power Point Station, with a collection of slide shows. I also suggested having a look at those templates in Brain Betty’s .
