Jenna Bush Hager joined Bing at PS 205 The Clarion School in Brooklyn, N.Y., to discuss Microsoft’s efforts to help bring digital literacy into the classroom with a new initiative called Bing in the Classroom. This program provides ad-free, safer search for public and private schools in the U.S., along with free daily lesson plans aligned with common core standards based on the daily Bing Homepage. In addition, parents and communities can earn Bing Rewards credits by searching on Bing and then donate those credits to the school of their choice to help the school earn Surface tablets for classrooms. So far, Bing in the Classroom has served more than 35 million ad-free queries to 4.5 million students in more than 5,000 schools, and people have also donated more than 2 million Rewards credits to schools. To learn more, please visit the blog post or bing.com/classroom.
