Eleanor Roosevelt once said “I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.” As a mother of a soon-to-be 2nd grader who 'wants to know everything about everything', I couldn't agree more! I wholeheartedly believe that a curious mind can imagine and achieve seemingly impossible things. But in today's world, where the thirst of curiosity is largely quenched by search engines and interactive media, creating a kid-friendly space for curious minds is often a challenge. I know I am there with Mili AT ALL TIMES when she is on the computer; but what about the situations when she is in school? Who can we trust when a parent or guardian is not there to keep a hawk eye on search engines? Well, seems like the people at Bing pondered over the same question! And the answer is Bing in the Classroom. By using Bing to search for anything online, anyone can earn Bing Rewards that can be donated to bring technology to schools and support ad-free searches in classrooms. Bing in the classroom is focused on helping kids use technology, satisfy their curiosity and provide ad-free, safe, private search in schools. Additionally, Bing community members can use their rewards points to earn tablets for their schools. The video below explains why all parents need to know about this amazing program!
