  8. 10. ACCESSIBILITY!! And they left one out…
  9. 11. <ul><li>“ In general, Web sites are becoming more and more graphical [Zajicek, 2007], which makes it difficult for assistive technologies to extract the relevant Web page content .” </li></ul>http://www.ijpis.net/issues/no2_2008/IJPIS_no2_2008_p2.pdf
  10. 12. <ul><li>“… content should always be presented in text form and graphical and auditory information should only be used as an optional enhancement which enables screen readers and other assistive technologies.” </li></ul>http://www.ijpis.net/issues/no2_2008/IJPIS_no2_2008_p2.pdf

  12. 15. YouTube
  13. 16. <ul><li>“ Herding a class of students down to the computer lab to watch a few catchy videos has no more learning benefit than turning a class of students onto the Internet for a half hour of random surfing . The power of YouTube only is activated when the teacher has a clear idea of how a specific video clip can be used to introduce a concept or theme, instigate a discussion, or serve as a writing prompt .” </li></ul><ul><li>Brenda Dyck </li></ul>http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/columnists/dyck/dyck016.shtml
