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. Use videatives to see how children think, to see how to support their learning, and to see how to prepare environments that engage children in rich problem solving.  Use videatives to add authenticity to your lectures or clarity to your training sessions.  Share videatives with parents to help them understand the value of play and the subtle ways a teacher can help children reflect on their own experiences.
