If Pam Peterson’s rendition of “Memory” sounds familiar, chances are good that assistive technology has become part of your life.
This 3-minute YouTube video is recommended for building awareness about memory. It communicates better than anything else we know of, and best of all, it may leave you with a smile.

THE COGNITIVE LOOP
If we experience “glitches”

|What should I capture?||Due dates? Appointments? Names? Deadlines? Everything? Only important stuff?|
|How often?||Whenever I think I might not remember something? Whenever something is important or time-sensitive? Every hour? Every minute?|
|Where should I put it?||Notebook? Day planner? Desk calendar? Mobile device? Computer? Sticky note? On anything I can find?|
|How will I find it?||Digital calendar? Keyword search? Labeled folder? Computer file name? E-mail search? Look in a pile of notes I put on my desk?|

• Add images quickly
• Find everything quickly
