In challenge number 125, David Anderson, the Articulate community manager, asked the community to develop demos that make use of scratch-off card effect.
When I first saw this newspaper article, I instantly turned over to the next page. Well, the article was a list of dos and don’ts, something that I don’t enjoy reading.
A couple of days after I had read the article, a thought struck me: What is the best way of making a person read through dos and don’ts? After tinkering with several ideas, I felt that the ‘Choice-and-Consequence’ strategy will work the best.
Moreover, if this strategy is combined with a story centring the learner, the dos and don’ts will go from being a passively read list to a high-stake activity.
