We all know the crazy things that can pop on your computer screen when you are doing a simple search for anything. As Ethan is getting older and doing more school work on the computer, I am starting to worry about what he will see and, more importantly, what he will click on.
Introducing Bing in the Classroom
With Bing in the Classroom, I know he will be protected when searching at school. When students use search engines other than Bing, they are shown ads that can distract from their studies. However, with Bing in the Classroom, all advertising is removed, there are strict filters for adult content, and enhanced privacy protection.
Bing in the Classroom removes ads and blocks searches from being used for personalized advertising for all Bing searches done through the school’s network, making Bing the only major search engine to provide a search offering tailored specifically for the classroom.
About Bing Rewards
Bing also wants to help you support your school! Anyone can earn credits just by searching the web with Bing—similar to a frequent flyer program. Credits can be donated to help get free Microsoft Surface tablets for schools. It’s easy! All you have to do is stay signed in as you search with Bing.
The Bing Rewards program enables you to earn credits towards Surface tablets for the school of your choice simply by signing up and searching with Bing. You can even search for any school by zip code and see how many other people are contributing, how many Surface tablets the school has earned so far, and how many credits are needed to earn the next Surface.
And? You can see if your school is registered for the search enhancements, so you can know if your kids are receiving ad-free, safer, more private search in the classroom with Bing.
