PKM in 2013

Learning and Working on the Web

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. PKM, or learning in networks, is a continuous process of seeking, sensing, and sharing. Innovation.

The PKM value-add

Learning and Working on the Web

During my online conversation ( recording on YouTube ) with Jane Hart  yesterday, we discussed personal knowledge management (PKM) and one very important aspect, in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. But sense-making, or placing information into context, is where the real personal value of PKM lies. The Automating sense-making is antithetical to the rationale behind PKM.

Why PKM?

Learning and Working on the Web

On Twitter, I mark my favourites and review them every two weeks, with the best becoming Friday’s Finds. Over the past year, I collected articles on the subject and saved them to Diigo , a social bookmarking service. I was recently asked by a friend if I knew of any resources on the subject. think of it as a short-term memory helper. Can you find it now?

What is your PKM routine?

Learning and Working on the Web

The most important aspect of PKM is that it is personal. My colleague Jane Hart shared her daily PKM routine recently and it’s different from mine, which of course it should be. recently chatted with Sacha Chua about PKM and archiving large blogs. So I would like to ask:  What kind of PKM routine do you practice? Sacha has over 6,000 blog posts!

PKM as pre-curation

Learning and Working on the Web

The most important part of  personal knowledge management  (PKM), in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. Merely One strength of PKM is the “manual” nature of sense-making activities. The act of writing a blog post, a tweet, or an annotation on a social bookmark all force you to think a bit more than clicking once and filing it to an automated system.

Sense-making with PKM

Learning and Working on the Web

People learn socially. Effective learning is the difference between surfing the waves or being drowned by them and PKM (personal knowledge management) can be your customized surfboard.

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Learning and Working on the Web

Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is a framework for individuals to take control of their professional development through a continuous process of seeking, sensing-making, and sharing. PKM may be an individual activity but it is social as well. Research shows that work teams that need to share complex knowledge need tighter social bonds. Working Out Loud.

It was an attempt to make my finds on Twitter more explicit, as I noticed I was sharing and viewing a lot of information on Twitter but not doing anything with it.

Bookmarking is one key method.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Only PKM can meet my needs, which only I know at any given time. Three Key Components of PKM.

PKM in 2010

This post is a continuation of Sense-making with PKM (March, 2009)]. What is PKM? PKM is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas. Why PKM? PKM is of little value unless the results are shared by connecting to others and contributing to meaningful conversations. Personal Knowledge Management. Aggregate.

Network Learning: Working Smarter

Jane Hart, another colleague at the Internet Time Alliance, has examined social media and learning in the context of the workplace and has noted that much of it is informal (Hart 2010). Social learning is about getting things done in networks. Accidental and serendipitous learning – how individuals, by using social media, can learn without consciously realizing it (e.g., 2010a.

Creating your PKM processes

Learning and Working on the Web

In Sense-making with PKM I described some personal knowledge management processes using various web tools. sense-making routine can be regularly reading certain blogs and news feeds, capturing important ideas with social bookmarks and then putting ideas out in the open on a blog. PKM takes the notion of a personal journal and extends it significantly. Categorize. Tweet.

PKM – start small

Learning and Working on the Web

Tony Karrer responded to my question yesterday on what aspects of PKM I should consider for the LearnTrends conference: Harold – my question is what organizations should be doing around this? Pretty well anyone with a personal computer saves web sites to their Favorites/Bookmarks. Changing that simple annotation process to something that can be shared is relatively easy. I’ve explained it before in Free Your Bookmarks. If an organization or department decided to put everyone’s bookmarks into a social application it would make for a large repository of links.

A personal learning journey

Learning and Working on the Web

Lilia Efimova ( 2004 ) was one of my earlier inspirations, “To a great extend PKM [personal knowledge management] is about shifting responsibility for learning and knowledge sharing from a company to individuals and this is the greatest challenge for both sides.&# This still sums up the core concept of PKM. By 2007, PKM had become my best tool and I had once more revised my processes. My own area of interest was PKM with web tools, though of course a PKM system can be unplugged. I was also seeing the similarities with personal learning environments: PLE.

Mmmmmmm, delicious

Spark Your Interest

I have used the social bookmarking service delicious on a fairly superficial level up to now, I would say. . I was interested in how I could share my links and when I was a manager of 12 trainers/instructional designers, the benefits of a pooled set of favourites/bookmarks, tagged and annotated made me salivate.  I realize now that this is really level one use, a group uploading their faves to the same place, mainly an efficiency savings and an access winner. . I’m no longer a manager with employees, I’m an independent.  Do I connect it to twitter?

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Learning and Working on the Web

That’s what personal knowledge management ( PKM ) is all about. The best first step in getting work done is to help each worker develop a PKM process, with an emphasis on personal. All it takes is getting everyone to do some form of PKM, on their own terms. PKM is our part of a social learning contract that makes us better off individually and collectively.

Tweet George Siemens calls it information management (what I describe as PKM). From my perspective, the knowledge aspect of PKM is an emergent property of the activities conducted, many of which are merely information management. more appropriate term would be Personal Information Management for Sense-making (PIMS?) , but PKM is the term I’m sticking with for now.

I was asked to make some predictions for 2011 but missed the deadline. Instead of predictions, I think there are some trends that may cross the chasm this year. This follows on a post I wrote a year ago that included this table: (2009). Innovators. Early Adopters.

The power of micro-blogging with Twitter so far is quite impressive and I was one who adopted this medium with a fair bit of skepticism. just noticed that in the past few months Twitter has replaced Google as the prime referring site for visitors here, surpassing Google.
