Bing For Schools Offers Ad-Free Search Experience, SafeSearch Filtered Content & Lesson Plans

bing-logoBing announced Bing For Schools today, a new program designed for K-12 US schools, scheduled to launch later this year. In an effort to help schools teach digital literacy skills, Bing For Schools will offer an ad-free search experience with SafeSearch settings to filter adult content and lesson plans attached to homepage images.

The Bing For Schools program will be free to any school that wishes to participate. Once a school opts-in, Bing will enable the specialized search features across all Bing.com searches from within the school’s network.

Bing says schools that use the program will have access to ad-free Bing.com searches, with all advertisements removed from search result pages, as well as SafeSearch to filter adult content. The SafeSearch mode will automatically default to the strict setting and cannot be changed by children using the program. Short lesson plans will also be included with Bing homepage images, helping students dig deeper into education-related topics using Bing search tools.

According to the announcement, Bing will make more information on the program available as the new school year approaches. Educators interested in Bing For Schools can register for updates at Bing.com/schools.
