• have the commitment, but not the time, to individualize your approach to students
• would like to build your own social-emotional competence
• want the wisdom and support of other teachers, right from the privacy of your own computer
• want job-embedded coaching, that can happen when, where, and how you need it
• want to maximize the benefits from Ripple Effects behavior training software for students
Ripple Effects for Staff professional development app for teachers, counselors and other school personnel coaches staff on classroom leadership, management of diversity and diverse learners and implementation best practices for evidence-based programs. It provides a computerized method to scale and sustain effective interventions for ALL students year after year.
How it works:
The program is comprised of 136 multi-media tutorials organized into three modules. Using any of the three modules, trainers can lead implementers through a pre-determined scope and sequence; individual professional staff can use it on their own to get up and get going fast or to find quick solutions to immediate concerns.
Module I: Strengthening Your Leadership
This module in Ripple Effects for Staff promotes leadership through personal transformation.
48 tutorials/12 contact hours.
Module II: Managing Diverse Learners
Module II takes implementer training to the next level, enabling educators to tease out learning issues, from behavior issues, from cultural issues, from health issues, and to address each of them with a combination of technical skill and emotional intelligence.
29 tutorials/7 contact hours. Addressing learning behavioral social cultural issues that challenge students and teacher alike.
Module III: Making Programs Work

Why it works:
In the face of formidable challenges, more and more educational organizations require staff to develop social-emotional skills and deliver programs that teach those skills to their students. Social-emotional competency is highly correlated with student safety, health, academic and social success. It is more tied to educators’ success than content proficiency.
