Jenny Anderson

Author, Journalist


I am an award-winning journalist, speaker and author with 20-years of experience on staff at places including the New York Times and Quartz. I am writing a book about the science of engagement and evidence-backed ways for parents to support teen learning (Penguin Random House, 2025). Also: a contributing columnist at TIME, a Learning Sciences Exchange fellow at the New America Foundation and a fiction aficionado. I obsess over learning: how we do it, how it's changing and why it's essential to human thriving.
