Audrey Watters is a technology journalist specializing in education technology news. She has worked in the education field for the past 15 years: as a graduate student, college instructor, and program manager for an edtech nonprofit. Although she was two chapters into a dissertation in comparative literature, she decided to eschew the professor track for a different path, and she now happily fulfills the one job that was recommended to her by a junior high aptitude test: freelance writer. Audrey writes about education technology issues with one foot firmly in the world of Internet technologies and one firmly in the world of education. She is the creator of the popular blog Hack Education and the author of widely read annual reviews of educational technology news and products.
