Novelty and Variety

"Though it is true that people resist change, they also like and need a certain degree of novelty and variety in their lives." Phil Schlechty


Misconception

Simply using a computer is novel.

As students use computers routinely the novelty wears off, so teachers need to design lessons where the activity on the computer is novel. Too much of even a good thing is not always good. For instance, riding the same roller coaster becomes less exciting with each ride.
