Jean M. Mistrot
Jean received his first computer (C64) at the age of 10 and began programming in BASIC to create small animations and graphics. As a young adult he was formally trained in the arts studying sculpture and painting at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In later years Jean obtained a degree in Visualization Science and worked as an assistant researcher with the Interface Ecology Lab (HCI) at Texas A & M University. Jean’s broad range of skills has allowed him over the years to work across the digital content space as an artist, programmer, designer, producer and instructor. Jean has experience teaching a wide range of learners including Montessori students, as well as undergraduate and graduate students attending NYU and Texas A & M. He has recently been re-focusing his efforts in the educational space and is currently investigating the use of interactive media in support of Narrative Based Learning.
