This video plays as students arrive. There is no spoken commentary. The visuals change every 3.5 seconds. Captioning is minimal. The idea is to pique curiosity. The verbal panels stay on longer and the bullets are automated. There are interesting builds in the visuals which this PDF format loses. For more pedagogical theory see the associated handout for session ii--accompanying description.
