I am wondering what relevance/use does the 'scooter move/push' have for speed skating, really? I would suggest it could be even teaching the wrong technique, as the purpose is to push backwards rather than sideways (but maybe I am missing something).
I think of far greater benefit for the speed skating technique are the parallel stroke drills that Coach Sooty has on his YT channel. These drills teach you to push sideways also in circular drills = they form a basis for your crossovers.

Best and good luck.
