Audrey Watters is officially awesome

There are a few people in educational technology that serve a critical role for me in tracking trends and making sense of what’s happening. Stephen Downes is one such node. Audrey Watters is another. I assume most people in our field are familiar with Downes. Audrey has been in my Reader for about 18 months or so. I absolutely love her work and ability to succinctly capture important technologies that are influencing education – as I’ve frequently declared on Twitter, FB, G+, and this blog. Audrey manages to escape hype-ism in her writings (ahem, DIY). I can’t think of a person that is more consistently thoughtful and spot-on in identifying startups and thinkers that are starting to impact education.

    This sentiment is something I’ve never been able to articulate about Audrey… I’m glad someone did.

    I couldn’t agree more.
