Bing in the Classroom

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bing in the Classroom. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Have you heard about Bing in the Classroom ? It's a wonderful program that helps bring technology to schools in a number of different areas. The internet is such an important learning tool and platform, but it can also provide a lot of distractions. Bing in the Classroom is helping to make the internet more accessible and less distracting for students.

1. Ad-free search - Bing in the Classroom is a new ad-free search engine that is available to many schools. It also offers a safe search with strict filters to block adult content, while even preventing the students from being subject to ad targeting. This program is offered free of charge to many schools, and it only takes a few minutes for an administrator to sign up.

2. Free Suface Tablets for your school - You can also help your school, or a school of your choice earn rewards just by searching the web through the Bing platform. Once you've signed up ( Sign up for Bing Rewards! ), when you search the internet on your computer, tablet, or phone, you earn points for your school. Every time a school earns 30,000 credits, Bing sends the school a Microsoft Surface Tablet with Type Face.

3. Digital literacy lessons - Bing offers 3 daily learning activities based on the Bing homepage. They are basically puzzles that can't be solved with a simple search, but require a combination of computer search skills and critical thinking. They are a fun way to practice and build important skills.
