Using Bing in the Classroom

Bing in the Classroom offers a variety of resources to help educators teach digital literacy skills—but the lesson doesn’t end in the classroom. Parents and teachers can take 10 minutes every day with kids to explore the web through a big, beautiful image of the day.
Bing in the Classroom lesson plans promote digital literacy and critical thinking in fun, short activities that align with the common core and are written by teachers we know and love. Check your Microsoft Education Network site for lesson plans here
Bing also offers amazing research tools for students and your school can gain rewards for Surface tablets just by sharing Bing Rewards for Schools with parents. Look for flyers in your mailboxes!!
