Videatives, Inc. provides both on-site consulting and eConsulting. Dr. George Forman and Dr. Ellen Hall help teachers make connections between current child development research and quality early education practice. Consulting can be tailored to fit the varied needs of teacher education programs, state departments of education, corporate/government daycare centers, or individual pre-primary schools. Videatives, Inc. provides clients with an overall view of the ways in which digital documentation, child development research, and early education practice can be combined to augment professional development and program quality. Videatives helps school leaders both develop and maintain professional development initiatives. Clients benefit from the immediacy of resources on the web and the continuous presence of eConsultants online who offer customized eCourses and webcamera teleconferences. Clients can build a "home library" of resources for long-term use with faculty and colleagues
Videatives, Inc. hosts conferences each year throughout North America in order to introduce educators to the power of videatives. These conferences are sometimes conducted in collaboration with colleges and universities, enabling participants to earn course credits and offering professors an opportunity to learn how to include videatives in their coursework. Conference participants acquire a new understanding of how to use dailly classroom experiences to determine what children know, as well as how to best support, enhance and extend that knowledge. Conferences provide teachers with an opportunity to bring their own video footage for analysis, and help teachers make decisions about what technology they need to enter the world of digital documentation. Videatives, Inc. continues to support teachers after they return to their work places through eCourses and eConsulting (e.g. sharing video clips using a webcam).
