Today is Ada Lovelace Day.
But do you know who Ada was or what she’s famous for?
Or why, as an edtech consultancy, we are celebrating her achievements today?
It’s because English writer and mathematician Ada, daughter of English poet Lord Bryon and Lady Bryon, is regarded as the first ever computer programmer.
She’s most famous for her work on the computer pioneer Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, called the Analytical Engine, back in the 1800s.
Ada was the first to recognise that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and to have published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine.
If you’re a school or trust that wants to incorporate Ada Lovelace into any of your lessons here’s a great resource to help.
Satori Education is a leading consultancy when it comes to edtech and helping schools and trusts to transform learning in the classroom.
