Audrey Watters

Folklorist and tech gypsy

Audrey Watters is a writer, folklorist, and self-described "tech gypsy" who bounces back and forth between Eugene, Oregon and San Francisco, covering education technology news. She has worked in the education field in some form or another for the past 15 years: as a graduate student, a college instructor, a program manager for an ed-tech non-profit. Although she was two-and-a-half chapters into a dissertation in Comparative Literature, she decided to eschew the literature 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.
