Audrey Watters is a writer who focuses on education and technology — the relationship between politics, pedagogy, business, culture, and ed-tech. She has worked in the education field for over 15 years: teaching, researching, organising, and project-managing. Although she was two chapters into her dissertation (on a topic completely unrelated to ed-tech), she decided to abandon academia, and she now happily fulfils the one job recommended to her by a junior high aptitude test: freelance writer.
At the end of every year since 2010 she has reviewed the most important and influential trends in education technology. This isn’t just a “listicle” – a quick dash through popular technologies. Rather, it’s an in-depth exploration and analysis of the events of the year: research.hackeducation.com/trends.html
Audrey was a visiting fellow at the lab in April 2017.
