Going from HTML to HTML5

While I get that HTML5 is the newest version of HTML, I'm completely lost as to whether or not what I've just learned in the HTML tutorials is HTML5 or something else. I've seen countless books at Barnes & Noble about HTML5, and all of the buzzwords I've seen like Canvas, Video (as a tag), etc. weren't included in the HTML tutorials.

Did I miss something, or can anyone recommend other resources so I can truly "master" HTML & HTML5?
