The Making Cognitive Connections approach

What is the MCC approach?

Does this sound familiar?

“I bought a smartphone…
…I downloaded some apps…
…but it's not helping!”

It's just not enough to buy the device and grab some apps. You need to:

  • Pick the right apps
  • Learn to use their most important functions step by step
  • See how each app function relates to keeping your life organized
  • Make some “cognitive connections” between your app use and the other parts of your life

The MCC approach teaches the basic steps necessary to use a smart device. At the same time, it points out the cognitive skills needed to do each step. Focusing on the cognitive skills required to use the device—and then having users apply those same skills to their everyday lives—makes this approach practical, concrete, relevant, and transferable.
