Move This World Strengthens Schools and Communities with
Social Emotional Learning for All Ages
Move This World provides social emotional learning (SEL) with the use of interactive videos, movement, and creative expression to help students, educators and families develop emotional intelligence skills for long-term wellbeing. Schools implement Move This World’s curriculum seamlessly into their day with short evidence-based videos that introduce a common language and methods for expressing emotion. Move This World’s programs lead to deeper self awareness, stronger relationships, effective communication and a culture of safety and support.
Developed with educators in alignment with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), Move This World is specially designed to meet you and your students where you are now, and support your needs.
Our extensive digital library of evidence-based videos address each developmental level with age-appropriate concepts that build sequentially over the course of a year. Videos are self-contained so that no additional preparation time is required, and teachers keep their valuable instruction time and family members need no prior training. As skills grow, stress in the classroom (and the living room) dissolves, student engagement increases and academic achievement improves.
When one school commits to SEL with Move This World, that school becomes a safe and positive learning environment. When an entire school district adopts our program, the impact extends beyond the classroom and into the community. When each family adopts the program, authentic partnerships between home and school are built. Children who develop social emotional learning skills become adults who are well equipped to navigate the complex and rapidly changing realities of life. How will your students grow up to Move This World?

A Consistent Focus on Social Emotional Skills
Move This World is aligned to the five core competencies of social emotional learning as defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, or CASEL -self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and decision making. Move This World helps families, students, and teachers learn and implement essential social emotional skills that can be utilized in the classroom and beyond.
The videos do a great job at connecting the mind and body through the discussion of emotions AND the physical manifestations. The videos are also available in Spanish! The social awareness component is excellent because it discusses preferences and how we must consider a person’s comfortability when interacting with others.

I’m so impressed with my students’ ability to name the stressors that they’re feeling. This is something that even adults struggle with. They’ve been doing a great job identifying exactly what is causing them stress and then matching it to a Move This World Emoger (emotional management strategy) to help them calm down.

The opening day videos have helped teachers better identify which students need more support. The programming has been really impactful for teachers and staff. Students have shown positive improvements in their behavior and in demonstrating stronger emotional intelligence.

With Move This World’s professional development, we are able to be truthful with ourselves and with one another. These truths allow us to address some much needed struggles we all go through in a healthy way.

This is my second training with Move This World. Once again, I have gained a reflective perspective about myself and how I respond to situations. With others being trained we will all begin to work together towards a common good.
Teacher, Howard County Public Schools, MD
Move This World has helped our students to understand, engage, express, and manage their emotions in a healthy way. My students begin each day by watching and practicing along with a short Move This World video, which allows them to move around, breathe, take note of, and release any emotional stressors.
Principal, Icahn Charter School 4, NYC DOE
I can say wholeheartedly that in our classroom MTW has made a wonderfully positive impact. As in most classrooms there are kiddos who struggle with being in control of their emotions.
