OECD reports influence educational policy decisions worldwide. In this report, chapter 9 lays out the reasons neuroscience should be known by teachers and contains 2 pages devoted to BrainU. See pages 214-215.
In this Tedx video titled "Teachers, know your brain!", Dr. Sandra van Aalderen-Smeets uses Dr Dubinsky's work to support her call for teachers to use more active learning strategies.
