A New Look at Clip Art #edtech

The post for tonight and tomorrow will likely be rapid fire as I get ready for the SETConnections conference on Saturday.  With the wealth of images available through flickr, morguefile and other social image sites, clip art often gets lost among the fray as campy images that take up too much space in presentations.  But I still believe if used sparingly there is still a need for clipart.  Clker is a great place to search for public domain clipart.  They have a huge repository that is fully searchable and have very few restrictions on how it can be used.  But what I really like about this site is they have incorporated an editor that allows you to deconstruct and truly make the image your own.  Of course, that same image must be shared under a public domain license.  Clker has definately found a way to make a name for itself in the Web 2.0 world.
