Clive Sinclair. Sir Clive Marles Sinclair (born 30 July 1940) is an English entrepreneur and inventor, most commonly known for his work in consumer electronics in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Clive Sinclair

After spending several years as assistant editor of Practical Wireless[1] and Instrument Practice, Sinclair founded Sinclair Radionics in 1961, where he produced the first slim-line electronic pocket calculator in 1972 (the Sinclair Executive). Sinclair later moved into the production of home computers and produced the Sinclair ZX80, the UK's first mass-market home computer for less than GB£100, and later, with Sinclair Research, the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum; the latter is widely recognised for its importance in the early days of the British home computer industry. Knighted in 1983, Sinclair formed Sinclair Vehicles and released the Sinclair C5, a battery electric vehicle that was a commercial failure.

Bring your own: how modern-day schools are trying to cope

Imagine for a second you're booked in for elective surgery, and six months before the operation you're told it's your responsibility to provide the hospital with the surgical tools and technology required for your operation. The Department of Health suggests if you can't afford to pay for the equipment, perhaps you could organise a cake stall to raise funds.

Of course this is a ludicrous scenario. It could never happen. Or could it? Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is an approach in which schools ask, or even require in the case of some non-government schools, that students bring their own laptops, tablets or smartphones to use in class. Advertisement BYOD strategies range from school to school. Schools are embracing BYOD because of that ever-present issue in education: money - or lack thereof, as the Digital Education Revolution funding comes to an end. Funding and equity issues aside, I wonder how teachers feel about BYOD. Computational thinking. Computational Thinking (CT) is a problem solving method that uses computer science techniques.

Computational thinking

The term computational thinking was first used by Seymour Papert in 1996.[1] Computational thinking can be used to algorithmically solve complicated problems of scale, and is often used to realize large improvements in efficiency.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] Overview[edit] The phrase computational thinking was brought to the forefront of the computer science community as a result of an ACM Communications article on the subject by Jeannette Wing.

The article suggested that thinking computationally was a fundamental skill for everyone, not just computer scientists, and argued for the importance of integrating computational ideas into other disciplines.[11] Computational Thinking. Digital literacy. Digital literacy is the ability to effectively and critically navigate, evaluate and create information using a range of digital technologies.

Digital literacy

It requires one "to recognize and use that power, to manipulate and transform digital media, to distribute pervasively, and to easily adapt them to new forms".[1] Digital literacy does not replace traditional forms of literacy. It builds upon the foundation of traditional forms of literacy.[1] Digital literacy is the marrying of the two terms digital and literacy; however, it is much more than a combination of the two terms. Digital information is a symbolic representation of data, and literacy refers to the ability to read for knowledge, write coherently, and think critically about the written word. Digital literacy researchers explore a wide variety of topics, including how people find, use, summarize, evaluate, create, and communicate information while using digital technologies.

Copyright Law, Treaties and Advice

Who actually holds the copyright in a piece of music - artist, record company, composer/publisher or all three? There is generally more than one owner of rights in any given track. The people who wrote the tune and the lyrics and/or their publishers own authors' rights, which is the classic copyright. The artist that performs that music has certain 'related rights' as a performer. And a record label typically owns the copyright or producer's related rights in the particular recording of the song. Permission is needed from all of these people who created the music-or those to whom they have assigned their rights-in order to use the music.

Back to top 2. All music and recordings of music are copyrighted and also subject to protections of 'related rights' as of the date they are created, and for at least 50 years afterwards (up to 120 years in some countries). 3.
