Microsoft to send Bing to school this year

Quote:
Bing may enroll at your local school by the end of the year.

Microsoft is developing a special edition of its Bing search engine geared specifically toward students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Known as Bing for Schools, the tailored version will remove all ads from search results, filter out adult content, beef up privacy protection, and add learning features to promote digital literacy, Microsoft said in a blog posted Monday.

This new version will be free and entirely voluntary for any interested schools. No special software or unique Web address will be required to access the site.

Ohhh, I thought for a moment they were sending Bing itself to school, to learn how to search for & find things, and maybe one day manage to be partially as useful as Google...

Pretty cool endeavour. I forsee Google copying this

Smart move for MS. Schools have, since integrating with the web, tried to locally lock down searching and settings. Giving them a dedicated search engine that will only give back a certain grade of results (pun intended) is only logical.

smart move indeed, as parents we welcome these ideas.
presumably we can then utilize it at home too.
