Schoolboy app developer on ICT classes
The current information and communications technology (ICT) curriculum in England's schools is a "mess" and must be radically revamped, the education secretary has announced.
From September it will be replaced by a flexible curriculum in computer science and programming, designed with the help of universities and industry.
Nick D'Aloisio is a schoolboy from London who developed his own app to simplify searches for information while swotting for his GSCEs.
His innovation made international headlines and attracted a commercial investment.
The BBC's Jon Sopel spoke to Nick from San Francisco via Skype.
