Learning and Working on the Web

It has been over 10 years that I have examined, practiced, and developed models for personal knowledge management/mastery. PKM shifts responsibility. Creativity, learning or desire to help others cannot be controlled, so knowledge workers need to be intrinsically motivated to deliver quality results. By late 2009, I described PKM as our part of the learning contract.

In 1986 the answer was typically about 75%. You cannot control serendipity.

tools to improve your performance as a knowledge worker. That said, I thought it would be worthwhile for me to collect a few of the resources that provide good starting points that can help Knowledge Workers improve their performance using Social Media. Last week I had a presentation around using Social Media and Web 2.0 One of the questions that always comes up is: How do I find more information to help me get started?

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” I was asked for some specifics and at the time I didn’t come up with really good answers. But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010. So, I’m afraid that I’ve a skewed perspective.

Fluctuating support networks

Learning and Working on the Web

In Exploring the informal organization in knowledge work: A grounded theory of  fluctuating support networks (2008), Judith concludes [my emphasis]: The study contributes to management praxis by raising awareness and offering insights into the practical value of fluctuating support networks and their power to rehumanize the knowledge workplace. Such perspective also highlights the value of the informal organization, and fluctuating support networks in particular, as important psychological infrastructure for the knowledge workplace. Holton, 2008).

It’s the Network

Learning and Working on the Web

Dealing with networks is the big challenge for leaders, managers and knowledge workers of all types. Developing personal strategies for sense-making, such as PKM , is the next step. Sharing knowledge and participating in professional networks then becomes a necessity for work. Tweet Over the past decade I’ve come to the conclusion that networks are changing everything in our lives. Because we are all inter-networked, work is learning and learning is the work. We can no longer separate learning and working, and all attempts to do so are fraught with problems.

The Evolving Social Organization

Learning and Working on the Web

Innovation abounds in the early stages and knowledge capitalization is aided by a common vision of the business. New layers of control and supervision continue to appear, silos are created, and knowledge acquisition is formalized in an attempt to gain efficiency through specialization. However, knowledge, and the acquisition of new knowledge, are still key factors for innovation and effectiveness. Wirearchy: a dynamic two-flow of power and authority based on knowledge, trust, credibility and a focus on results enabled by people and technology. Complication.
