Google "Stock Photos" for Education

There's a new option for inserting something called "Stock photos". Basically if you go to insert an image as usual, you now have five options:
  • Upload
  • URL
  • Google Image Search
  • Picasa Wen Albums
  • Stock photos
Choose the "Stock photos" options (click on the image to the right for a bigger view), and then try out some common search terms. I had pretty good luck getting images for most things I entered, however the results seem to be more like real pictures and less like cartoon clipart. They are all images that can be used without copyright concerns.
