Q. Can students use copyrighted images in their presentation projects?
If the presentations aren’t online, you can use pretty much whatever you want. Images taken from the internet or elsewhere being used locally/in the classroom, for research/teaching/scholarship is allowed under Fair Use. Citing those images really depends on where they came from but it would be best, even off-line, to ask your students to give credit regardless of whether that material is protected or not by U.S. Copyright law. Whatever style guide you are using in the course should be your guide for how the citations should be formatted.
Here's a good video (less than 6 minutes) that will help your students understand Fair Use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYB3f7U9NFs.
