Ah.

0:00:140:00:15

This week, Click is going back to school

0:00:300:00:33

to get under the skin of education.

0:00:330:00:35

We're in Malawi to see a teaching app that could have

0:00:350:00:39

huge potential in classrooms around the world...

0:00:390:00:42

and in the US, where students are using anonymous messaging apps

0:00:420:00:46

to combat bullying.

0:00:460:00:47

Plus, it's time to limber up and learn a new routine.

0:00:490:00:52

Welcome to Click. I'm Spencer Kelly.

0:00:570:01:00

For much of the world, this week is back-to-school week,

0:01:000:01:03

so we're all about education for you on today's programme.

0:01:030:01:05

This is the music technology room

0:01:050:01:08

at Brockenhurst College in the south of England

0:01:080:01:10

and this place has been working closely with IBM

0:01:100:01:13

to study that most peculiar of creatures...

0:01:130:01:16

the student.

0:01:160:01:17

More on that later.

0:01:170:01:19

But we start in the developing world,

0:01:190:01:22

where schools can't possibly offer this level of technology.

0:01:220:01:26

We often feature projects which try to redress this by, for example,

0:01:260:01:29

distributing tablets and laptops to the kids.

0:01:290:01:32

But worthy as they are,

0:01:320:01:34

we do find ourselves asking how effective they can possibly be.

0:01:340:01:39

Well, one project that we've been following in Malawi

0:01:390:01:42

has actually proved to have so much educational benefit

0:01:420:01:46

that it might be brought out of Africa and back to the UK.

0:01:460:01:50

Welcome to the school run, Malawi-style.

0:01:530:01:56

The seventh poorest country in the world,

0:01:580:02:00

educational resources are already overstretched...

0:02:000:02:04

and that was before the recent population boom which now means

0:02:040:02:07

that nearly half of Malawians are under the age of 14.

0:02:070:02:12

There are a huge number of children in the classroom,

0:02:120:02:16

90 per teacher on average.

0:02:160:02:17

And in some schools, there are classes of 300 or more.

0:02:170:02:21

This is the solution - at least according to one charity.

0:02:240:02:27

It's something called the "onebillion" app

0:02:270:02:31

For half an hour a day,

0:02:310:02:32

each child gets a special maths teacher all to themselves.

0:02:320:02:37

It is being developed by Andrew Ashe

0:02:370:02:39

who, with his long connection with Malawi

0:02:390:02:42

and his business developing language teaching apps,

0:02:420:02:44

thought this might make the difference.

0:02:440:02:47

Children are taken out of their class a few at a time

0:02:470:02:50

and each given a tablet running the app.

0:02:500:02:53

It only takes a few minutes to learn,

0:02:530:02:54

and all the instructions are in the local language, Chichewa.

0:02:540:02:57

The app assumes kids have had no previous formal maths learning

0:03:200:03:24

and, crucially, each can progress at their own rate.

0:03:240:03:28

Learning is broken down into fun tasks and easy steps

0:03:280:03:31

and there's a test at the end of each level.

0:03:310:03:34

If you pass, you get a certificate and you can move onto the next.

0:03:340:03:38

The kids in the small groups trialling this programme have found,

0:03:380:03:42

in a short time, their scores are not simply improving,

0:03:420:03:45

they are rocketing.

0:03:450:03:46

Now, this project is a little different from the similar schemes

0:03:490:03:52

we've seen before because it caught the attention of researchers

0:03:520:03:55

at Nottingham University in the UK

0:03:550:03:57

and they wanted to try a little experiment.

0:03:570:04:00

Back home, they decided to test out the app

0:04:030:04:06

they'd seen in Malawi on children in this Nottingham school.

0:04:060:04:09

After translating the app into English,

0:04:110:04:13

it was handed out to these four and five-year-olds here

0:04:130:04:16

at the Dunkirk Primary School.

0:04:160:04:19

Group learning was carried out in the same way as in Malawi,

0:04:190:04:22

daily 30-minute sessions with their progress monitored.

0:04:220:04:26

In Malawi, the choice is an app teacher

0:04:260:04:29

or almost no teacher attention at all.

0:04:290:04:31

But surely here, where schools have far more resources,

0:04:310:04:35

this app wouldn't make that much of a difference.

0:04:350:04:38

Well, it turns out it did.

0:04:380:04:42

Nottingham University's study found that six weeks using the app

0:04:420:04:46

accelerated the maths learning of these children

0:04:460:04:48

by between 12 and 18 months.

0:04:480:04:52

What was incredible about this was that in both countries,

0:04:520:04:55

we saw this same gain.

0:04:550:04:57

One week of working on the iPads for 30 minutes a day

0:04:570:05:01

lead to three months of formal education.

0:05:010:05:05

That sounds incredible. How did you feel when you saw those results?

0:05:050:05:10

Well, we were amazed.

0:05:100:05:12

One thing that the Malawian and British children have in common

0:05:120:05:16

is that neither started with any formal maths learning.

0:05:160:05:20

That seems important, but why did it get such good results?

0:05:200:05:24

So one of the reasons I think the app works is that the children

0:05:240:05:27

get immediate feedback on getting a question right.

0:05:270:05:32

If they don't get it right, they can't progress,

0:05:320:05:35

but when they do get it right,

0:05:350:05:37

they get a big yellow checkmark and they get a nice ping.

0:05:370:05:40

And that immediate feedback is really rewarding to the children.

0:05:400:05:44

When you get close, when you get them all, you can win a certificate.

0:05:440:05:51

Oh, no. What are we going to do now?

0:05:510:05:54

-Do you like playing these computers?

-Yeah.

-Yeah?

0:05:550:05:57

-They're not computers, they're iPads!

-Oh, I'm sorry.

0:05:590:06:02

'And those rewards were doing their job for sure.'

0:06:050:06:08

-TABLET PINGS

-Yes!

0:06:080:06:10

COMPUTER RECORDING CHEERS

0:06:100:06:12

But even if the children enjoy using the tablets,

0:06:120:06:16

is it right to encourage it?

0:06:160:06:18

After all, many parents are trying to cut down their kids' screen time.

0:06:180:06:23

We found that after half an hour, most of the children said, you know,

0:06:230:06:27

"No, we've had enough now, we want to go and carry on playing."

0:06:270:06:30

Because they love playing outside, they love playing with each other.

0:06:300:06:33

Thank you very much. Thank you, thank you.

0:06:330:06:36

He's busy.

0:06:360:06:38

My little boy goes to school very soon so I'm a nervous parent,

0:06:380:06:43

and I'm worried whether he's going to be learning enough

0:06:430:06:45

and whether he's going to have enough fun.

0:06:450:06:47

I'm sure these guys, for the rest of each day,

0:06:470:06:50

do have a riot and throw things and make things.

0:06:500:06:53

But what's really interesting is the half hour that they spend doing this

0:06:530:06:57

each day seems to be really quiet and really focused.

0:06:570:07:01

I really do get the feeling

0:07:010:07:03

that they are actually learning stuff here.

0:07:030:07:06

Kids in the UK have a future guaranteed to be more or less

0:07:070:07:10

connected to technology like this.

0:07:100:07:12

In Malawi, that is far from the case.

0:07:120:07:15

But onebillion believes its ambition of teaching

0:07:150:07:17

the entire nation's children just the very basics in maths

0:07:170:07:21

will have a profound effect on their future.

0:07:210:07:24

If you haven't got access to basic education,

0:07:240:07:27

if you're not even numerate, you can't do anything.

0:07:270:07:30

Even selling tomatoes at a market stall is denied to you.

0:07:300:07:34

So these children, it's so important that they get these basic skills.

0:07:340:07:38

And numeracy is a key skill, a fundamental...

0:07:380:07:41

It's almost a human right.

0:07:410:07:44

Running this app nationwide in Malawi

0:07:440:07:46

will certainly be a challenge.

0:07:460:07:48

But after seeing plenty of technologies being stripped

0:07:480:07:50

to basics and repurposed for use in the developing world,

0:07:500:07:53

it is refreshing to see that something originally made for Africa

0:07:530:07:57

can work just as well in the rest of the world, too.

0:07:570:08:01

'Now, if you could give me a couple of minutes,

0:08:010:08:04

'I really want to get that next certificate!'

0:08:040:08:06

-CHILDREN:

-Bye!

0:08:060:08:09

And we'll show you what this college has been doing to help

0:08:140:08:17

its students in a couple of minutes

0:08:170:08:18

after we hear which technology stories have been making

0:08:180:08:21

the most noise this week.

0:08:210:08:23

DISCORDANT PIANO KEYS

0:08:230:08:25

It's been a revealing week for celebrities

0:08:250:08:28

who have iCloud accounts.

0:08:280:08:30

Some were hacked and private photos published on internet forum sites.

0:08:300:08:34

Apple suggested the hackers managed to work out

0:08:340:08:37

the login credentials of victims.

0:08:370:08:39

The company said there was no evidence of a breach

0:08:390:08:41

of its security systems.

0:08:410:08:43

The FBI is now looking into the case.

0:08:430:08:46

A new virtual reality headset by Samsung was one of the highlights

0:08:460:08:49

of Europe's largest consumer electronics expo, IFA.

0:08:490:08:53

Samsung also showed off a new smartphone with a touch screen edge

0:08:530:08:57

and a smart watch with its own SIM Card, capable of making calls

0:08:570:09:02

without the need to be paired with a mobile device.

0:09:020:09:05

In next week's show,

0:09:050:09:06

we'll have a full round-up of the IFA show from Berlin.

0:09:060:09:10

And a 3-D printer is about to boldly go

0:09:100:09:13

where no 3-D printer has gone before.

0:09:130:09:15

A small desktop printer is scheduled to head into the final frontier

0:09:150:09:19

aboard a SpaceX resupply mission which could be aboard

0:09:190:09:23

the International Space Station in a matter of weeks.

0:09:230:09:26

It's hoped that astronauts will be able to print the objects

0:09:260:09:29

they need on a mission, rather than wait for the next rocket to turn up.

0:09:290:09:33

Jennifer and Katie are starting a new year

0:09:390:09:41

here at Brockenhurst College.

0:09:410:09:43

A shared interest in microbiology has brought these two together

0:09:430:09:46

on the college's new, private social network.

0:09:460:09:49

The teacher can get involved in the community that's created,

0:09:490:09:52

but it's mainly for the students.

0:09:520:09:55

They can find information about their course, watch videos,

0:09:550:09:58

share work and even chat with other students

0:09:580:10:01

at a sister college in China.

0:10:010:10:03

You can follow different groups, people, pages,

0:10:030:10:06

whatever you want to follow, really.

0:10:060:10:08

It's all part of a trial being run by IBM which is looking at ways

0:10:080:10:12

of analysing data to give staff here

0:10:120:10:14

a better understanding of their students.

0:10:140:10:17

And behind this dashboard,

0:10:170:10:19

there certainly is a lot of data-crunching going on.

0:10:190:10:22

IBM calls it predictive analysis,

0:10:220:10:24

using data provided by students before they arrived at college

0:10:240:10:28

to tailor their course to the way that they learn.

0:10:280:10:32

During term time, the system is also capable of spotting those

0:10:320:10:36

who might be underperforming by monitoring social media.

0:10:360:10:39

Would you look for keywords once they're on the course

0:10:390:10:42

like, "I'm bored," or

0:10:420:10:44

"I'm not enjoying this, I'd rather go out than do this studying?"

0:10:440:10:49

Is that the sort of thing that's possible with this?

0:10:490:10:51

It's possible and of course it comes down to preferences

0:10:510:10:54

of how the college wants to implement it

0:10:540:10:56

and what students want to make available.

0:10:560:10:58

But like any consumer experience,

0:10:580:11:00

if you want to make that information available and it means

0:11:000:11:04

your experience is more positive as a consequence,

0:11:040:11:07

then people will tend to do that and it will build momentum.

0:11:070:11:11

Brockenhurst Principal Di Roberts

0:11:110:11:13

thinks this technology will help the team spot struggling students.

0:11:130:11:18

It's a development of what we already do.

0:11:180:11:20

We have a system by which we share information about students.

0:11:200:11:24

So in one particular class, how is this student working?

0:11:240:11:28

In another particular class, are they doing as well?

0:11:280:11:31

And that's shared amongst teachers, shared amongst personal tutors.

0:11:310:11:34

What the predictive analytics will do is give us greater depth.

0:11:340:11:38

So it's not just a teacher saying,

0:11:380:11:40

"Well, I'm not sure this student is doing particularly very well.

0:11:400:11:43

"Can somebody else tell me how they're doing in their class?"

0:11:430:11:48

We will have the analytic information that says this student,

0:11:480:11:53

with this sort of profile, is possibly at risk.

0:11:530:11:56

So if your students interact with the college on social media,

0:11:560:12:00

on Facebook or Twitter, they can expect what they say to be monitored

0:12:000:12:06

and absorbed into the system, taken into account?

0:12:060:12:08

Absolutely. It's a little bit like Amazon,

0:12:080:12:11

when you go online and you get followed around.

0:12:110:12:14

It's not going to be like Big Brother,

0:12:140:12:16

but in terms of being able to remind students,

0:12:160:12:19

"Are you working at your full capacity?

0:12:190:12:22

"If you do this, you will go up a grade."

0:12:220:12:25

So the technology does, in theory, allow for you to spot keywords?

0:12:250:12:30

-Yes.

-Is it something you would think about doing?

0:12:300:12:33

To yours and the students' advantages?

0:12:330:12:36

It is definitely around consent.

0:12:360:12:39

What you don't want to feel...

0:12:390:12:41

And certainly, I know when I was 16 and 17,

0:12:410:12:44

I didn't want to feel I had somebody watching over my shoulder.

0:12:440:12:47

But, in a way, when they come into an educational setting,

0:12:470:12:51

they are aware that we will be looking out for them.

0:12:510:12:55

We'll be making sure they're not getting into difficulty.

0:12:550:12:59

And I think if it's explained how that will operate

0:12:590:13:03

and they do consent, then yes.

0:13:030:13:05

But I really think what we don't want to do is put students off

0:13:050:13:08

by thinking they don't have an outside life

0:13:080:13:12

to the life that's about education.

0:13:120:13:15

They overlap. They integrate and they're very much interconnected.

0:13:150:13:20

But students do deserve to have the privacy.

0:13:200:13:26

But increasingly, because it's on Facebook,

0:13:260:13:30

more students probably wouldn't have an objection,

0:13:300:13:34

because it's something they're used to sharing.

0:13:340:13:37

But it would have to be with their consent.

0:13:370:13:40

We're certainly putting more of our lives online

0:13:400:13:43

and from an earlier age these days.

0:13:430:13:45

But there is a growing trend towards social networking apps,

0:13:450:13:48

like Yik Yak, Secret and Whisper,

0:13:480:13:52

which hide our online identities.

0:13:520:13:55

But anonymity comes with its own set of challenges,

0:13:550:13:58

as Jonathan Blake has been finding out in Atlanta.

0:13:580:14:01

Life is pretty good for Brooks Buffington and Tyler Droll.

0:14:040:14:08

Just out of college and barely into their twenties,

0:14:080:14:11

they've developed anonymous messaging app Yik Yak.

0:14:110:14:13

It lets users share posts with everyone nearby,

0:14:150:14:18

whilst hiding their identity.

0:14:180:14:20

From this low-key office in Atlanta's Tech Village,

0:14:200:14:23

Yik Yak is riding a wave.

0:14:230:14:25

Anonymity online has never been so popular.

0:14:250:14:28

This idea is nothing new but we really lucked out on its timing.

0:14:280:14:32

I think everyone's used Twitter and Facebook,

0:14:320:14:34

where your identity is brightly cast out on the internet.

0:14:340:14:39

Now they want some more privacy.

0:14:390:14:41

You know, "Where can I go on the internet and post things

0:14:410:14:43

"that I can't talk about on Facebook cos my teacher is on there

0:14:430:14:46

"and my mom is on there," and all of that.

0:14:460:14:49

So they just want a sense of privacy

0:14:490:14:51

where they can freely express ideas and communicate with other people.

0:14:510:14:55

Yik Yak was aimed at college students,

0:14:550:14:58

perfect for sharing all the details about life on campus.

0:14:580:15:01

But when the app took off in high schools,

0:15:020:15:05

it led to security scares and handed cyber bullies

0:15:050:15:08

a new and particularly nasty weapon.

0:15:080:15:11

An alert tonight on an app that's called Yik Yak and why every parent

0:15:110:15:15

really should know if their son or daughter has it

0:15:150:15:17

in tonight's Daily Dot Com.

0:15:170:15:18

I first heard about it at nine o'clock in the morning

0:15:180:15:21

and I'd say by noon, every student had it on their phone.

0:15:210:15:24

Teachers were downloading it, administrators were looking at it.

0:15:240:15:27

It became a sort of competition of who could post the meanest thing.

0:15:270:15:30

Everyone trying to top each other in terms of how funny it was

0:15:300:15:33

and also how mean it was.

0:15:330:15:35

Yik Yak responded using the location-based nature of the app

0:15:350:15:39

to block it from certain areas.

0:15:390:15:42

Yik Yak plotted the location of schools and, using the GPS technology

0:15:420:15:46

within smartphones, was able to disable the app in those areas.

0:15:460:15:50

It's now blocked from at least 85% of US schools.

0:15:500:15:54

Try downloading Yik Yak here and it's no good.

0:15:550:15:57

I get a pop-up saying it looks like I am near a school

0:15:570:16:00

and messaging is disabled and that's the geo-blocking in action.

0:16:000:16:04

But despite the problems many schools have had with anonymous messaging,

0:16:040:16:08

this one is embracing technology and anonymity with an app of its own.

0:16:080:16:13

Every student here at Irmo High School in South Carolina

0:16:140:16:17

is issued with an iPad.

0:16:170:16:19

As well as a teaching aid, the tablets are also being used as a way

0:16:190:16:22

for the school authorities to monitor what is happening.

0:16:220:16:26

An app called Anonymous Alerts allows students to tip off teachers

0:16:260:16:30

about any problems or concerns they may have.

0:16:300:16:33

"Two young males got into a fight."

0:16:330:16:39

Time, where it happened, when it happened,

0:16:390:16:42

and if you know the person's name and what they look like,

0:16:420:16:44

you can describe it there in that area.

0:16:440:16:47

Despite a few hoax reports and false alarms,

0:16:470:16:50

many students here say it's made them feel safer.

0:16:500:16:53

There was a kid and he had a gun behind me

0:16:530:16:57

and he pulled it out of his book bag and I turned around and saw it.

0:16:570:17:01

At that moment, I was kind of in shock.

0:17:010:17:03

I didn't know whether or not to get up and go to the teacher

0:17:030:17:08

or to sit there or to leave.

0:17:080:17:10

If I'd had the app, I would have definitely, at that moment, gone on

0:17:100:17:14

and probably gotten up to leave the classroom.

0:17:140:17:18

Every school leader in this country is very cognisant of the fact

0:17:180:17:23

that any day you come to work could be the day

0:17:230:17:26

that we are on the news for something horrible.

0:17:260:17:28

And I think it gives us in our building a sense of...

0:17:280:17:32

I don't want to say false security,

0:17:320:17:34

because you can never be 100% secure,

0:17:340:17:37

but it gives us additional security that we feel as though we have done

0:17:370:17:42

everything we possibly can to try to prevent anything that could occur.

0:17:420:17:46

BALLET MUSIC

0:17:540:17:58

I've been asked to do many unusual things on this programme,

0:18:020:18:05

but I have to say...

0:18:050:18:08

never before ballet.

0:18:080:18:09

Come on, Spencer, let's go this way.

0:18:120:18:15

'OK, so how did I end up in this mess?

0:18:150:18:17

'Well, I was kind of tricked into it by an intriguing app

0:18:170:18:21

'made by Dutch developers Game Oven.

0:18:210:18:24

'Bounden asks you to find a partner and together hold a smartphone.

0:18:240:18:29

'Without letting go, you then have to twist and turn it together

0:18:290:18:32

'to move the cross hairs around this little globe.

0:18:320:18:36

'The phone's motion sensors make this a very precise job

0:18:360:18:39

'and before you know it, you're recreating the moves

0:18:390:18:42

'the choreographer had in mind.

0:18:420:18:44

'Well, that's the idea, anyway. This is how it's supposed to look.'

0:18:440:18:48

So how did Game Oven's Adriaan de Jongh

0:18:500:18:53

come to be working with a ballet company?

0:18:530:18:56

We started thinking,

0:18:560:18:57

"OK, this is apparently a way we can make people move together.

0:18:570:19:00

"But this is the way to do it.

0:19:000:19:04

"What are the actually movements that they're going to be doing?"

0:19:040:19:06

So we were looking around and thinking,

0:19:060:19:09

"Well, maybe we should get a choreographer on the team."

0:19:090:19:12

So we just, you know, called the Dutch National Ballet.

0:19:120:19:15

Well, unfortunately, we only have one expert dancer in the room at the moment,

0:19:150:19:19

although we do seem to be making a little bit of progress.

0:19:190:19:22

'My extremely patient dance partner, Julia Gillespie, used to dance

0:19:220:19:26

'with Game Oven's collaborators, the Dutch National Ballet.

0:19:260:19:29

'She's now with the Rambert Dance Company on London's South Bank.'

0:19:290:19:34

-HE LAUGHS

-How do I always end up like this?

0:19:340:19:36

So does she think that Bounden can give you a balletic boost?

0:19:360:19:41

It's good for partnership and our movements but the footwork...

0:19:420:19:48

We have to work on our footwork, I think.

0:19:480:19:52

Who would you recommend this for?

0:19:520:19:54

Beginners that haven't perhaps done a dance class before.

0:19:550:20:00

Couples?

0:20:000:20:03

A nice way to get close and learn how to dance together.

0:20:040:20:09

'Perhaps, then, Adriaan and his team are thinking about more

0:20:090:20:12

'about how you feel than how you move.'

0:20:120:20:14

I think games as a medium have explored only a limited amount

0:20:140:20:19

of emotions and experiences.

0:20:190:20:22

There's so many more things that we can do.

0:20:220:20:26

It's a bit more like Twister than a dance, I have to say.

0:20:260:20:30

'Now, let's face it. There's clearly much more to ballet

0:20:300:20:32

'than moving a phone through the air but, well, it's a start

0:20:320:20:35

'and it does make a refreshing change from flinging birds at pigs.'

0:20:350:20:40

And relax. Thank you, Julie. Take five.

0:20:400:20:45

And now we will cross to...

0:20:450:20:48

Show off!

0:20:480:20:50

-We will cross to...

-HE GRUNTS

0:20:500:20:52

..the Webscape studio,

0:20:520:20:53

where I can imagine Kate Russell can teach us a thing or two.

0:20:530:20:57

-(Can you help me down, please?)

-No.

0:20:570:21:00

There's no real substitute for pen and paper when you're learning,

0:21:060:21:09

but these days, kids need to grow up understanding how to use

0:21:090:21:13

digital notebooks and sketch pads as well,

0:21:130:21:16

or they could be left behind.

0:21:160:21:18

For artistic impulses and jotting down notes,

0:21:180:21:21

Paper by FiftyThree is a great example of what's available for iOS.

0:21:210:21:26

I'll confess, I don't normally take the time to read the instructions

0:21:330:21:37

when I try a new app out.

0:21:370:21:39

So I was a little bit lost with Paper to begin with.

0:21:390:21:43

But once I rewound and discovered the pinch and swipe peculiarities

0:21:430:21:48

of interfacing with this app,

0:21:480:21:50

I found it extremely elegant and intuitive.

0:21:500:21:53

For arty Android users, there are a few choices too.

0:21:560:21:59

I like Artflow as it has a huge selection of brushes and tools.

0:21:590:22:04

You can even export to a Photoshop file to work on a sketch

0:22:040:22:07

in more detail later.

0:22:070:22:09

And it has a nifty feature called "palm rejection",

0:22:090:22:12

so you won't accidentally zoom in resting your hand on the screen.

0:22:120:22:17

The basic features are free,

0:22:170:22:19

with in-app purchases for the more detailed stuff,

0:22:190:22:22

and if your Android already has a stylus,

0:22:220:22:25

you won't need to shell out for that extra too.

0:22:250:22:27

There are lots of great examples of apps created by kids.

0:22:290:22:32

I love this iPhone app,

0:22:320:22:34

by a seven-year-old called Leah and her dad Irwin,

0:22:340:22:38

Minihug, which helps parents monitor how much time quality time

0:22:380:22:42

they're spending away from their technology

0:22:420:22:45

playing with their children.

0:22:450:22:47

Apps can also be a great way to teach kids,

0:22:540:22:57

and this week, the Staffordshire Police Force in the UK

0:22:570:23:00

has launched a Flappy Bird-style game called Kash Dash,

0:23:000:23:04

that aims to help young people understand how to stay safe online.

0:23:040:23:08

If your mind needs further expansion,

0:23:130:23:16

the legendary lectures of Nobel prize-winning physicist

0:23:160:23:19

Richard Feynman are now all available free

0:23:190:23:22

on the Feynman Lectures website in text form.

0:23:220:23:25

If you prefer video, the Microsoft Tuva project has remastered

0:23:280:23:32

seven of the great physicist's lectures filmed in the 1960s

0:23:320:23:36

and presented them with annotations

0:23:360:23:38

and links to further educational material.

0:23:380:23:41

And mathematically, we can write that great law down in a formula,

0:23:410:23:45

some kind of a constant times the product of the two masses

0:23:450:23:49

divided by the square of the distance.

0:23:490:23:52

Kate Russell's Webscape concluding today's lesson.

0:23:520:23:56

Hope you've enjoyed our educational special from Brockenhurst College,

0:23:560:23:59
