Jason has also developed curriculum and strategic planning to train young and upcoming leaders at all levels of primary and secondary schools in order to ensure excellence in schools and to rethink the development of leadership.

    In 2008, in a sabbatical year, he also partnered with top developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience researchers to bring research findings into the classroom and education. He has written for the prestigious journal, Mind, Brain and Education, about the research findings of Professor Mary Helen Immordino Yang of USC who examined the impact of two boys who received functional hemispherectomies and its impact on their capacity to learn.

    As a lecturer at American Jewish University’s programs for teacher training and advanced master’s degrees in education and in school-based teacher workshops, he trains teachers on creating gender aware classrooms and has also taught year-long courses to teams of educators in schools as well as graduate level seminars regarding the relationship between cognitive neuroscience and education.
