Rapid tools: more bubble machine than bubble

“Clip art it to death”.  When I read that line is Donald Clark’s post I thought he must be seeing the same types of things that I’ve been seeing a lot of in my organization lately.  Another phrase I’m reminded of when it comes to clip art, animations and other distracting items is “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” 

…and as always don’t forget to peruse the comments.

With rapid production, as soon as you need images, the clip-art clowns come out to play. Sure you can clip-art away, and infantilise both content and audience, but don’t pretend this is serious learning.
