S'cool Moves Online Courses
Ready to learn? Ready to have fun?
Here at S'cool Moves we don't think these are mutually exclusive.
S'cool Moves Online Courses are presented in our easy to use online classroom. Courses consist of easy to digest lessons featuring engaging video instruction, lively written content, thought provoking student activities, and ongoing online group discussion.
Many of our courses offer Continuing Education Units through Chico State University (details inside course offerings).
We offer two ways to experience S'cool Moves Online Courses: AS A GROUP with our Online Blended Courses (OBC) or INDIVIDUALLY with our Self-Guided Courses (DIY). More info ahead...
Online Blended Courses Ready when you are
What are they? Who are they for? READ ON.
WHO: Small groups of twelve to thirty people (there is flexibility if a few more want to register). This process only works well with small groups and best when group members are working with K-5 students. This is not designed for larger groups.
WHAT: Our Online Blended Courses are an overview of our tiered interventions. “Blended” means a combination of self-guided viewing of materials in our online classroom and offline small group activities, along with 2.5 hours (or less if need be) of live online instruction with Debra Em Wilson, Reading Specialist and founder of S’cool Moves.
Online blended courses are designed to meet your group's goals. If you have designated inservice days, early release days, or are part of a Professional Learning Community, this is a great way to enhance your professional practice.
For a deeper dive into S'cool Moves theory and best practices, please see our DIY option below.
WHEN: Whatever date(s) works best for your group as long as we have the date available. The format is flexible to meet with your scheduling needs. Attendees have access to our online classroom for several weeks to view videos, download content, and review material covered during the live session with Debra.
WHERE: Together in one room with screen, projector, computer with a camera, speakers, and high speed internet. Individual tablets are not needed (or desired due to technology issues).
WHY: Our courses focus on evidence-based practice and lead to innovative, collaborative classrooms... AND they’re FUN!
HOW MUCH: $145.00/person ~ Includes materials to go with the course. Materials provided if purchased separately are more than the cost of the per person course (such a deal!). Materials include three sets of posters and instruction booklet.
THE CATCH: All materials must be sent to one location. One person will be the leader who will correspond with our office to make all arrangements for the course, including distribution of materials.
TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS: You need a computer with a camera that is connected to a Smart Board or LCD projector, a projector screen for participants to view the course content, speakers attached to the laptop, high speed internet, and a room where everyone can gather in one place. It doesn't need to be fancy, just quiet and distraction free. The course is delivered via Gotomeeting so current operating systems are needed. It is as simple as one click and costs nothing on your end. Everything is set-up automatically once you click on the meeting link that is sent to you. Dry runs are available for those who want to test the technology prior to the actual course day. This is recommended. Debra shows you around the Gotomeeting platform and prepares you for a stellar delivery free from technology jitters. In the event the internet is down on your end, storms roll in, or some disaster strikes, courses are rescheduled at no extra charge.
WHAT IF WE DON'T HAVE I DON'T HAVE A GROUP? We have scheduled DIY courses for individuals. See the information at the bottom of this page regarding our courses structured for individuals to complete on their own.
The Online Blended Course is an overview of our Tiered interventions:
Our Minute Moves interventions are designed for whole school involvement to enhance the quality of collaboration between teachers, therapists, parents, and support staff. Classroom management, improving focus, translating clinical practice into school-based practice, teaching self-regulation skills, and practical application of educationally relevant neuroscience are the ultimate goals for our Minute Moves information.
Questions To Consider
Our Focus Moves interventions are designed to teach effective strategies to help students focus more of their energy on academics by bridging the developmental gap that holds some children back from accessing curricula. Focus Moves activities supplement motor groups, APE, PE, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech, transitions, brain breaks, behavior intervention, and special education curricula.
Power Up! Moves
The Power Up! Moves small group interventions are designed to supplement classroom instruction and integrate therapy techniques into reading strategies. Evidence-based theory underpins the techniques discussed and is essential information for teachers and support staff working with children who may have co-morbid sensory processing, dyslexia, dyscalculia, and/or ADHD. Add to any reading curriculum.

Here's what our Clients are saying about Online Courses—
“Can’t wait to incorporate these ideas in the classroom. I prefer ‘push in’ services rather than the ‘pull out’ model. Plus the S’cool Moves activities are very easy to instruct!”
“Its so nice to have evidence based research to discuss what I’ve known but couldn’t prove except through case stories.”
“I am excited to incorporate S’cool Moves into my daily practice with students!”
“I appreciate you and the time (15 years!) you have put into your research and teaching. I am glad to be receiving this training and I hope I can get more educators to “buy in” to what we already know but struggle to implement into the curriculum.”
“I appreciated all your work producing such an excellent program. The materials are wonderful. I am looking forward to taking the next two classes and to begin using this program.”
