What is a Videative?

The word videative [vid´-é-ã-tive]   refers to the combination of text and video segments to create an integrated viewing experience (video + narrative = videative). The text explains the video and the video exemplifies the text. Our videatives help you see what children know™ and thereby help you better support their learning.

Videatives make general principles of child development and early education come to life. Students learn to "see what children know", not through testing, but through careful observation. Teachers have higher-level conversations with children. Help children reflect on their actions and offer them better support for their thinking.
