We all know that “visuals” matter in learning. And in motivating, in turns out…
I admit to a certain fondness for Starbucks Frappuccinos. Now I don’t get them that often, but once in a while….ahh, you can’t beat that cool coffee sweetness.
Of course, my wife would give the standard warnings about how many calories are in them, and making sure the life insurance is paid up, yadda, yadda, yadda – but those factoids really didn’t motivate. It’s one thing to learn a fact. It’s another to unlearn a behavior.
Then I saw this. This graphic might be the first documented example of an Un-learning Content Object. Words and facts – easily ignored. Picture – gulp!
Now I may yet, at some future moment of weakness, indulge in one of these calorie-laden treats, but I guarantee you that I won’t make the decision lightly anymore!
