  5. 5. Before we begin… I usually like to start out each lecture presentation with a thought provoking video, quote, story, or interesting article related to technology and/or instruction. The next slide contains a video titled, “Are you paying attention?” I came across it as I was researching information related to Web 2.0 . It presents a broader perspective on teaching and learning and emphasizes the use of current technology tools to make learning a more meaningful experience for students. As you watch the following video, think about the types of Web 2.0 tools that can be integrated into curriculum and instruction.
