SXSW EDU Mentor Sessions


Jessica Millstone

Director of Engagement, BrainPOP

Talk to me about:

  • Identifying new trends and emerging technologies that will benefit teaching and learning at all ages and levels
  • Blending a background of research & teaching with working in technology product development
  • Identifying the talent needs of a project or organization and helping connect the right people to the right project

    Jessica Millstone, Ed.M., M.P.S., is currently the Director of Engagement at BrainPOP, leading the creation of a new experiential and games-based learning initiative. Prior to joining BrainPOP, Jessica was the inaugural Education Fellow on the Games & Learning Publishing Council at the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, a research and innovation lab at Sesame Workshop. Her fellowship research, supported by BrainPOP and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, documented the use of digital and video games in the elementary and middle school classroom to promote deeper learning. She holds a master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunications from New York University, and an Ed.M. from Bank Street College of Education, where she was until recently an adjunct instructor of instructional technology.
