how learners experience information dumps

This comic from The Usable Learning Blog provides the perfect, visual, I’d say even visceral, explanation of why information dumps do not work. You can really feel the learner’s reaction.

I especially love how the author/artist Julie Dirksen concludes (emphasis added by me):

You can make them sit through it, but you can’t make them pick it up and carry it around…

Thanks to a tweet from Kathy Sierra.
