Elliott Hedman

EdTech Designer and Researcher
mPath Design

Dr. Elliott Hedman helps elevate the voices of all children. He earned his Ph.D. at the MIT Media Lab, where he helped invent a sensor that can measure children’s subconscious emotional responses. After working at IDEO and Google, Elliott formed the consulting company mPath, that helps companies like the LEGO Group and McGraw Hill empathize and build for the students and teachers they serve. In a blaze of passion, Elliott also created a free app,, that reinvents the reading experience for struggling readers. While he hasn’t fully pursued it yet, Elliott is convinced that he’s a pretty good stand-up comedian for 8 year old children.
