I awakened one fine morning open to the joys of the day ahead which usually entails answering lots of emails. However, on this day, I received an email that made me grateful (if only for a minute or so) to the internet and it's power to take over our lives in the form of cyberspace correspondence commonly known as "email."
The Email That Made Me Grateful for Email
I received an email from Eric Henrickson last week. It read, "Greetings! My company's foundation, The Meemic Foundation, funded implementation of S'cool Moves at a school in Big Rapids, MI. It was impressive to see all the kids doing exercise, and we filmed a video about how they were doing with the program. We thought you might be interested."
Interested? Heck ya! You see, when I do workshops and online training, I often don't know what happens after that. I sent follow-up surveys to the NYC DOE therapists to evaluate how much of S'cool Moves was being used after one month. The results were impressive, and I was happy to see that everyone who answered the survey, over 100 attendees, were using the program with the exception of two people who couldn't quite figure out how best to get started.
One of the questions asked what type of support they'd like to have as they continue on their S'cool Moves implementation journey. As a group, the therapists unanimously said, "We'd love to review the course."
You Asked For It, We Obliged!
I do cover a lot of ground in one day, so the desire to review the course makes sense. I'm happy to report that everyone who takes a workshop now has the opportunity to log in to our online classroom and review the course, plus take advantage of more clips and content that I don't have time to share in the one day course.
Double-Loop Learning For Greater Success With Implementation
There are discussion threads and on-going classroom discussions. I'm loving this format! The research tells us clearly that single-loop learning isn't effective. Swinging back through and revisiting content increases the odds of implementing what is learned.
Needless to say, I was impressed watching this video and getting the insider view of how Riverview Elementary has implemented strategies presented at the conference that members of their staff attended with me (without the review course being available to them at the time). I award them and the Meemic Foundation with the honorary S'cool Moves Super Cape Award of Excellence!

If you have a Super Cape of Excellence story you'd like to share. Email me and make me happy to click on my "in box." Thanks for all you do for children!
