Microsoft Bing today announced their updated Bing for Schools program. It will have the following advantages,
- The new Bing for Schools program will offer daily lesson plans designed to teach search skills
- Bing Rewards enhancements to help earn Microsoft Surface RT tablets for schools, and, for schools admitted to the pilot program, a tailored Bing search experience for K-12 students when on the school network.
- Schools participating in the search pilot will receive ad-free Bing search, strict filtering to help block adult content, and augmented privacy protections.
This program is not open for all schools right now. However school districts can register for these search enhancements now and a limited number will be accepted into the initial pilot, with other schools being notified by Microsoft about future eligibility.
