Obviously, photos can be great educational tools with English Language Learners and with any students (see The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons). I post about many photo galleries, also called slideshows. To do it in a little more organized way, though, I recently began this weekly feature called “Photo Galleries Of The Week.” This post is a “round-up” of online slideshows I’m adding to various “The Best…” lists:

Winners of the 2014 World Press Photo Multimedia Contest have just been announced. It’s a somewhat different contest, but I’m still adding it to The Best “World Press Photo” Winners.

National Geographic has a slideshow showing The Oldest Living Things On Earth.

The 2014 National Geographic Traveler Contest has just begun to accept entries, and here is a sampling of them. I’m adding it to The Best Travel Photographs Of The Year.

Designs of the Year: 76 eye-catching creations is a photo gallery from The BBC. I’m not yet sure if I should add it to The Best Images Of Weird, Cool & Neat-Looking Buildings (& Ways To Design Your Own) or to The Best Sites For Learning About Famous Buildings.
