Stories are not vitamin pills

Posted on: May 10, 2014

This article does a good job of selling the idea of using stories to get your point across. Up to a point.

I believe in the power of stories. But I think there is a problem with describing stories as vitamin pills that are good for you but are not fun to take. These sorts of vitamins are not natural, may be hard to swallow, and are taken separately from a meal.

Vitamins occur naturally in some foods. You consume them without knowing and require no extra effort.

Likewise, any ICT-mediated change effort or lesson activity can be integrated or implemented as a separate activity. The pill might be more concentrated and easy to mass produce. But it is not natural and may be hard to swallow.
