Bing for Schools has officially launched! I wrote about it back in June, but as of last week the program offering safe, ad free search for your kid’s school is fully launched. (Note: I have a professional working relationship with Bing).
But in even better news, you can also sign up for Bing Rewards and each time you search, you can earn credits for your kid’s school, and that can lead to getting a Surface tablet into the school!
Here’s how it works.
First, go on over to Bing and sign up for Bing Rewards here. Then use Bing to do your searching! If 60 parents at your school do this, the school can earn a new Surface tablet a month.
In a press release, Bing shared that the Los Angeles Unified School District has already started using Bing for Schools.
“In the Los Angeles Unified School District, we strive to stay on top of new and innovative ways to leverage technology to promote high-quality teaching and learning,” said Ronald S. Chandler, chief information officer, Los Angeles Unified School District. “Collaborating with community partners like Microsoft is an essential part of bringing the best possible educational experience we can to our students. I look forward to supporting the Bing for Schools program, which is designed to promote digital literacy by helping to put new devices into the hands of students, teach them how to use them well, and facilitating learning in a safe and supportive environment.”
I think it’s a pretty cool program (and not just because I work with Bing). Check it out, and sign up your school today!
