I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

But how do we sort through all this information, effectively filter content, judge the good from bad, and make sense of it all? The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. So too are our personal learning networks.

Not to mention they asked really good questions about content design and they genuinely wanted to learn how to do better by their organization. When asked about informal learning and how they progressed their own knowledge of the training industry, the room got silent. Do we forget to encourage learning for our own people?

What is common across the learning modes and methods mentioned? Social learning via an enterprise collaboration platform. Mobile enabled learning accessible anytime, anywhere, on any device of the user’s choice. MOOCs which straddle the line between social learning and e-learning with learner communities.
