This week Click is going back to school to find out just how much

:00:42.:00:47.

industry should get involved with teaching technology. Works are so

:00:47.:00:51.

last season as we took up the latest technology that charges

:00:51.:00:59.

without Wise -- works. All the latest tech news and a safe way to

:00:59.:01:09.
:01:09.:01:09.

get your kids online. Welcome to Click. I am Spencer

:01:09.:01:14.

Kelly. Look at this. This is four use of my life right here with

:01:14.:01:19.

University notes, my final year dissertation, all in computer

:01:19.:01:25.

science. Good stuff, programming, electronics, basic machine

:01:25.:01:28.

architecture, genetic algorithms. This passion for programming

:01:28.:01:34.

started when I was ten years old when I had my first BBC

:01:34.:01:37.

Microcomputer. In the small number of years since then many schools up

:01:37.:01:45.

moved away from teaching computers in this much depth.

:01:45.:01:48.

Today, school children are surrounded by more technology than

:01:48.:01:56.

ever before. There is going concern the current curriculum covered by a

:01:56.:02:02.

player or T1 -- Information Technology & Communications, which

:02:02.:02:07.

defines the way children are taught about technology, does not acquit

:02:07.:02:13.

children with the tools to fuel the 21st century technology based

:02:13.:02:17.

economy. It is important everybody gets the basic skills to get the

:02:17.:02:20.

jobs in the future but we need to go further and do more in computer

:02:20.:02:25.

science. In the 1980s, the first 8- bit computers caused a

:02:25.:02:29.

technological revolution in the home. For the first run,

:02:29.:02:36.

enthusiasts could cheaply learn how to programme a computer. In 1982,

:02:36.:02:41.

the BBC Microcomputer began to appear in UK schools. It was the

:02:41.:02:45.

start of another revolution, this time in the classroom. We had a

:02:45.:02:49.

crisis in schools today in regards to Information Technology &

:02:49.:02:54.

Communications. The BBC Microcomputer was a cornerstone of

:02:54.:02:59.

competing in schools. ZX Spectrum was a affordable computer. Children

:02:59.:03:04.

were inspired to create technology. Today they just use technology. We

:03:04.:03:08.

teach children to read but not to write. Learning how to use

:03:08.:03:13.

computers is of course important. But many leading industry figures

:03:13.:03:16.

believe that being sought her to use bits of software or

:03:16.:03:26.
:03:26.:03:27.

applications simply is not enough. Break time. Two years ago, Ian

:03:27.:03:34.

Livingstone, the President of Eidos, the home of Lara Croft, and Alex

:03:34.:03:44.
:03:44.:03:45.

Hope, were asked to write a report about the tools children have to

:03:45.:03:49.

find jobs in the technology industry. We published a report

:03:49.:03:57.

last year. It got nowhere particularly. We tried to engage

:03:57.:04:01.

with the civil servants. They said they key but no thank you. It was

:04:01.:04:11.
:04:11.:04:12.

not until last August when a leading figure gave a lecture that

:04:12.:04:16.

we started thinking. I was flabbergasted to learn that

:04:17.:04:22.

technology is not taught as a standard in the UK. This puts York

:04:22.:04:28.

rate computer heritage under risk. When Eric Schmidt says we should

:04:28.:04:32.

have technology in the curriculum everybody sets up. As a result the

:04:32.:04:35.

government has pledged to change the current programme of study,

:04:35.:04:42.

replacing it with computer science at its heart. However, business and

:04:42.:04:47.

industry has been tasked with achieving this. We have filmed a

:04:47.:04:54.

Next Gen Coalition on the back of a cross industry coalition, backed by

:04:54.:05:04.
:05:04.:05:06.

British Computer Society and UKIE. We are endeavouring to create a

:05:06.:05:10.

curriculum that will satisfy the government but is also inspiring

:05:10.:05:16.

and exciting to get children on board to want to do it. But is it

:05:16.:05:19.

appropriate for the technology industry to pursue such a hands-on

:05:19.:05:26.

role in education? It must be good to have such

:05:26.:05:32.

inspiration. Microsoft and Google are good examples. They employ a

:05:32.:05:37.

huge amount of engineers and they generate huge amounts of profits.

:05:37.:05:41.

Everybody uses those products. We cannot imagine a world without

:05:41.:05:45.

search engines. Because of an Google our leading players. It is

:05:45.:05:55.
:05:55.:05:58.

very appropriate. -- Microsoft and Google.

:05:58.:06:03.

Work has already begun to help inspire feature computer scientist.

:06:03.:06:08.

These children are using a visual programming system called Kodu,

:06:08.:06:15.

which allows its users to build simple games. A computer science,

:06:15.:06:19.

you need to understand how the software works and the ballots.

:06:19.:06:28.

That is why should be taught at a young age -- and how it develops.

:06:28.:06:34.

Teaching as young as eight, 9 and 10, then people can understand

:06:35.:06:41.

these people can be the next future scientists in the future.

:06:41.:06:44.

Gadgeteer is a project developed by because of research that should

:06:44.:06:50.

address these concerns. Project Gadgeteer was conceived as a tool

:06:50.:06:56.

to help us build new types of devices. We had lots of ideas for

:06:56.:06:59.

different devices that could be interesting to explore and we

:06:59.:07:05.

wanted to be able to build one. system encompasses programming and

:07:05.:07:13.

involves working together different models to created a wide variety of

:07:13.:07:17.

games. We spoke to teachers and they got excited about what they

:07:17.:07:22.

thought they could do in the class and in terms of the children

:07:22.:07:29.

building and turning their ideas into reality. This is an example of

:07:29.:07:34.

something we built in our laboratory with Gadgeteer. We have

:07:34.:07:40.

made a nice Enclosure. You can make something that is very visually

:07:40.:07:48.

appealing. We have a version of the play if 49, where I had to steer

:07:48.:07:56.

the snake around. -- snake game. This is an example of another game.

:07:56.:07:59.

This one is interesting because it was built by a group of

:07:59.:08:05.

schoolchildren who were involved in a pilot of get a searing. Children

:08:05.:08:08.

have been used in this programme and learning about it and building

:08:08.:08:12.

their own projects in an after- school club. After just ten weeks,

:08:12.:08:17.

one hour a week, these children put together this example, another

:08:17.:08:25.

arcade game. What this device is is actually a stop animation system.

:08:25.:08:30.

The idea is that there is a jitters will come on the front of the units.

:08:30.:08:36.

The display has an SD card. I walk into use this guy into the shot.

:08:36.:08:44.

The idea is that we will build up a movie and then maybe he will end by

:08:44.:08:53.

staring at the camera. In a similar vein, a project that hect that hed

:08:53.:08:58.

huge interest is Raspberry Pi, a fully programmable computer that

:08:58.:09:03.

cost just �25. This is a Raspberry Pi computer. It is a very small

:09:03.:09:09.

computer. But in the middle inside there is a processor that is

:09:09.:09:15.

running at 700MHz. We also have a graphics processing units, GPU.

:09:15.:09:20.

That is delivering the graphics to this green. There is also a HDMI

:09:20.:09:25.

transmitter inside there as well, delivering video. The first thing I

:09:25.:09:30.

am going to do is start of the Graphical User Environment. The

:09:30.:09:35.

best of his in a short time and we can begin using it. I will open two

:09:35.:09:41.

windows. The first is for a programme called Snake. Then I am

:09:41.:09:45.

going to open another window and that will actually run the

:09:45.:09:49.

programme within it. It opens up a third dimension in computing and

:09:49.:09:55.

takes computing from plug 'n' play to plug, play and explore. That is

:09:55.:09:59.

a very exciting thing. We give it to students around the world and it

:09:59.:10:06.

will open up their minds to what is possible with computing. Microsoft

:10:06.:10:10.

and AQA have already partners to create a new GCSE in computer

:10:10.:10:14.

science that will include programming for wear and mobile

:10:14.:10:19.

applications. This is competing in the old school cents. Almost like

:10:19.:10:24.

the 1980s. Users slaving over a code and programming. Technology in

:10:24.:10:32.

education is very much looking back to the future.

:10:32.:10:35.

How much of the computing nuts and bolts do you think we need to know

:10:36.:10:44.

a look at the technology news of this week.

:10:44.:10:51.

The military has used drones for a while but now the infamous file

:10:51.:10:54.

sharing side The Pirate Bay says it will use high altitude aircraft to

:10:54.:10:59.

avoid being taken off line. The authorities do not like the way the

:10:59.:11:04.

site uses places where they can download copyrighted the ones

:11:04.:11:10.

without paying. The site plans to use GPS controlled manner 11, with

:11:10.:11:20.
:11:20.:11:23.

tiny computers, to redirect traffic to sewers at secret locations.

:11:23.:11:28.

There has been a deal with LogMeIn to allow access to Android devices.

:11:28.:11:33.

The software allows Dennis's to run diagnostics and fixed

:11:33.:11:37.

configurations and trouble should issues were over the use it is, as

:11:37.:11:43.

long as they are on the internet. Think of saving money? A new study

:11:43.:11:47.

suggests you could be paying for what are apps in that real life.

:11:47.:11:51.

Researchers have found some apps that serve up third party adverts,

:11:51.:11:56.

used four times the back to power it would have otherwise. Angry

:11:56.:12:00.

Birds needs just 20% of its energy consumption to let you play the

:12:00.:12:05.

game itself. Tracking the music, exchanging information and sending

:12:05.:12:09.

those adverts takes up the rest. Finally, the online world has got

:12:09.:12:14.

itself into a flap over this video by a Jarno Smeets, supposedly

:12:14.:12:19.

showing him flying using only home- made wings. His website looks real

:12:19.:12:26.

and fooled many news applets. But alas Jarno Smeets admitted it was a

:12:26.:12:32.

hoax, explaining it as an exercise in one mind storytelling. Only

:12:32.:12:38.

after 3 million YouTube hits, of course.

:12:38.:12:42.

If you own an electric toothbrush but have never paid attention to

:12:42.:12:47.

how it charges, look at this. He put the plastic birch on the

:12:47.:12:55.

plastic base and it charges. -- rush. No wides and no metal to

:12:55.:13:00.

conduct the electricity -- wires. It is a technique called magnetic

:13:00.:13:03.

induction and we are starting to see it being used to charge mobile

:13:03.:13:09.

phones and even bigger star. We have been taking a look at just how

:13:10.:13:16.

far we can take the concert of a live without wires. -- concept.

:13:16.:13:23.

This is no ordinary magazine Muggles, it is magic. OK, it is not

:13:23.:13:27.

but it feels like it. The front page as a wireless receiver and it

:13:28.:13:32.

is being powered by a shelf it is sitting on. Take it away and it

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:45.

stops working. Genius or hocus- pocus? Dinosaurs are scary but only

:13:45.:13:55.
:13:55.:13:55.

when they come to life. Staff do not have to keep on checking

:13:56.:13:59.

batches will be replaced because they will be fully charged and

:13:59.:14:03.

roaring to go from the moment you leave the shop. Over the past few

:14:03.:14:07.

years, while this charging has become more commonplace. In the

:14:07.:14:12.

subtle devices, a small coil it is placed inside the charging device

:14:12.:14:16.

which is plugged into the mains. Then a small receiver goes into the

:14:16.:14:23.

handset so you can pop your phone down to choose it up rather that

:14:23.:14:31.

plugging it in -- charge. This has 95% efficiency. You may not need a

:14:31.:14:34.

spare still charging scharging se future for it to work. We may have

:14:34.:14:39.

a solution where we can take all the technology and puts it into

:14:39.:14:44.

something very similar to what it is doing now in a memory card. This

:14:44.:14:50.

is not a memory card, this is a wireless charging device. You put

:14:50.:14:58.

in this memory card into the phone. You close the phone. Then he puts

:14:58.:15:02.

it down and this mobile phone has become a wireless power enabled

:15:02.:15:11.

bone. That is really what is going to happen 30 years from now -- bone.

:15:11.:15:16.

A common standard was set for smaller devices using power in 2010

:15:16.:15:20.

and this year an agreement is expected between manufacturers on a

:15:20.:15:24.

standard for logic kitchen appliances, the city the ears of

:15:24.:15:34.
:15:34.:15:42.

Today, if we want to convert our existing services to wireless a

:15:42.:15:47.

power players, we need to take a jilted them and bury a coil inside.

:15:47.:15:52.

Later this year, it will be easier thanks black to new versions which

:15:52.:16:00.

will work through it is -- thicker materials. They will be smart as

:16:00.:16:04.

well, able detect what is put over them and deliver a stronger charge.

:16:04.:16:10.

In teacher, we may not have to take our friends across our pockets to

:16:20.:16:23.

charge them. -- been up feature. It is outside the car were wireless

:16:23.:16:29.

charging could prove a real game changed. This electric car is

:16:29.:16:34.

charged by parking it exactly over its charger. That will be embedded

:16:34.:16:41.

in his garage or parking space. This system means you do not have

:16:41.:16:45.

to be dapper size. What is unique about this system is its tolerance

:16:45.:16:51.

stick the wheels on the white lines of the parking space and these two

:16:51.:16:56.

pads was still transfer energy. That is because the virtual pipe

:16:56.:16:59.

between them is allied magnetically. There are always trying to find

:16:59.:17:04.

each other to ensure maximum efficiency. The size of the

:17:04.:17:09.

receiver on the car is shrinking as well. The Dannatt link up believe

:17:09.:17:17.

means at the efficiency is around 90%. -- decoupling. If you know how

:17:17.:17:22.

to park, you know had a chat. You can park it in any normal parking

:17:22.:17:26.

space as long as there is a charging point. As in Asia park,

:17:26.:17:36.
:17:36.:17:40.

it's that charging. -- as soon as you park. Nobody wants it to run

:17:40.:17:45.

out a field. The system is animal friendly as well. It a cat happens

:17:45.:17:53.

to take a liking to sit underneath powers are down. That spatial

:17:53.:17:57.

freedom to no longer have to be over the charging point opens up

:17:57.:18:03.

other possibilities. This is just a dream that the men made. But there

:18:03.:18:06.

is no reason why hundreds of charging points cannot be embedded

:18:06.:18:13.

on Rome's, each one sending a market charge to Abkhaz as we drive

:18:13.:18:23.
:18:23.:18:24.

along. -- on the roads. -- charging our cars. 2014 at the very earliest.

:18:24.:18:28.

There is a lot of work that needs to be done to get it into the

:18:28.:18:34.

streets. It will take a little longer. While it took ages to get

:18:34.:18:38.

from charging an electric toothbrush a wireless to anything

:18:38.:18:47.

else, it seems a wireless power has magic momentum.

:18:47.:18:50.

He can teach you but he will have to charge.

:18:50.:18:55.

Modern parents had a lot to worry about. At what age should you be

:18:55.:18:59.

giving your kids more freedom? Letting them walk to school with

:18:59.:19:04.

friends for example. What age she needed them a mobile phone? Now we

:19:04.:19:08.

have e-mail addresses and social networking accounts to worry about

:19:08.:19:14.

as well. In the UK, it is estimated around one-third of children aged

:19:14.:19:19.

eight to 11 already have a Facebook profile despite the joining age

:19:19.:19:23.

being 13. If your child is being a curious, the suggestion should be

:19:23.:19:30.

right up your street. It might be hard being a parent but growing up

:19:30.:19:36.

was not exactly a walk in the park as I remember it. It can be a walk

:19:36.:19:43.

in the online park if you join this community. This is an online

:19:43.:19:48.

virtual world for Keats, created by parents to be a safe and

:19:48.:19:52.

challenging plays for young minds to start experiencing, exploring

:19:52.:19:57.

and socialising online. The world is very fond explore. There many

:19:57.:20:01.

games and quests around. But what makes these really special is the

:20:01.:20:06.

way it encourages children to play away from their computers as well

:20:06.:20:13.

with craft projects you can make in the real world. Many of the craft

:20:13.:20:19.

items had been designed by a players usinayers usinump. There is

a weekly competition to add more. Some games and features require a
