Here are some websites to check out to find various resources to use freely in your TNI or other presentations.

Picto 
http://www.picto.qc.ca
It is a bank made up of more than 600 images and illustrations, which are intended for educational use.

Bidulz
http://www.bidulz.com/banqueimages.htm
This bank contains 102 images of ten whimsical characters, ranging from little boy and mouse to Christmas tree and chili pepper.

The world in pictures
http://monde.ccdmd.qc.ca
This resource offers more than 23,000 images from the regions of Quebec and the world. In addition to images of landscapes, monuments and animals, there are images for the field of science.

Education hub
http://carrefour-education.qc.ca/multimedia/autres_suggestions
The “Multimedia” section of Carrefour education offers an engine allowing you to search for royalty-free images in several image banks at the same time, including those mentioned above. The “Other Suggestions” section includes websites that offer pictures, sounds, videos, and even text that can be used freely in the classroom.

Google Images Advanced Search
https://www.google.ca/advanced_image_search
Google Images now makes it possible to search for images by specifying the type of license sought, going up to different levels up to "free of rights to use, distribute or modify, including for commercial purposes".

Finally, if you yourself create digital content to use with the TNI, or any other type of teaching material, and you want to share it on the Web to other teachers, do not hesitate to include a mention that authorizes classroom use of these resources. By making this habit, teachers who share content for classroom use allow their colleagues to quickly find out if they are respecting copyright by reusing it!
