PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning. PKM is also a key skill of being an effective autonomous learner – as we can see from the many individuals who are already organizing and managing their own personal learning strategies in the organization – and consequently a key aspect of BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning). So how can we help students as well as workers develop the new PKM skills? PKM Social learning

This necessitates individuals to practice Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) and build their Personal Learning Networks (PLN). Since not all L&D members possibly use social media to drive their own professional development, acquiring the skills of PKM will require some time and effort. This is directly tied to the skills of community management and facilitation of virtual collaboration. As community managers, we have to remove all obstacles from the path of change.

Build communities – We are in the midst of the sharing economy which is all about open data, user-generated content, crowd-sourcing, shared value co-creation, collaboration, and more.

This is leading to a shift in the role of the L&D department – from managers and disseminators of formally designed programs to facilitators and enablers of collaboration and communities.

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

All of which has now become possible due to the availability of an ever-increasing number of instructional and informational resources as well as social tools, together with easy access to huge numbers of people in social networks and online communities.

Is it time for a BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning) strategy in your organization? #BYOL

Jane Hart

A number of comments focused on how we now need to make training/e-learning more “engaging” or “effective” to recapture the interest of these people. For some people, this may simply mean getting out of their way; for others it may involve providing some guidance and assistance on how to be an effective BYOLearner. Use Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) techniques as a continuous process of seeking, sense-making and sharing.

Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers

Most organizations (there are exceptions like Buffer, Etsy, and Community Sourced Capital ) see themselves as isolated players in competition with others in the same field.

So most children develop effective verbal communication skills early in life. One of the key elements of 70:20:10 is the principal that the learning which is most likely to be effective, and the learning that lasts, is the learning that occurs closest to the point of use. High performers are invariably embedded in their professional communities both within and outside their organisation. Humans are an incredibly inquisitive and extremely social species.
