What strikes me about this whole DIY/informal learning/death of ISD conversation is that what were really talking about are those so-called motivated knowledge workers.

I Believe in the Erosion of Hierarchies

Tom Spiglanin

1 Its purpose is ultimately to help produce viable products, whether they’re tangible or knowledge-based (such as in a consultancy). The hierarchy is commonly represented with the org chart, a two-dimensional block diagram showing the authoritative wiring of the organization. It’s relatively easy to understand the hierarchy of an organization, most commonly represented in the form of an org chart.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

I recently came across this description, which fits well: “A PLN is an aspect of (the larger professional network), where the individual has a group of people within his or her virtual professional network, and the relationship with each is based upon a common interest, collaborative project or research. Recognizing this learning and making good use of it requires effective personal knowledge management practices.

I Believe in the Value of Working out Loud

Tom Spiglanin

In organizations comprised largely of knowledge workers, each with unique responsibilities, tasks may not follow reproducible processes, just as every artist’s creation is unique. Still, every worker’s current activity uses skills developed through past experience, draws upon his or her whole knowledge base, and has some relationship with past and future work of the organization. The Danger of Knowledge Hoarding.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. These are good practices that help us grow our knowledge, but what we really need are mindful, disciplined processes for managing it on a daily basis. What we need is to exercise personal knowledge management, or PKM. PKM is distinct from organizational knowledge management, which is widely used today. Knowledge management systems only manage documents, or knowledge artifacts.

Assessment, but not as we know it. #EduTechAU

Learning with 'e's

Because it was established at a time when knowledge was the main currency for education, and where employers demanded knowledgeable workers. Why can't assessment be made more relevant to the new requirements of learning in an age where students need to be problem solvers, inventive and creative. Assessment destroys creativity he declared, and again his audience of educators nodded sagely.

Better together

Learning with 'e's

Vygotsky's Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) theory has several layers, but the important one to consider is the zone where we are able to learn more with the help of a more knowledgeable other person. Image from Wikimedia Commons This has been the principle of apprenticeships since ancient times. Young men and women would learn and practice their skills and knowledge in the presence and under the authority of a master craftsmen or practitioner.

Turning over a new leaf

Learning with 'e's

She talks about the five key ways knowledge workers like to learn today. As Jane Hart argues in her report, one of the things most knowledge workers desire is to be able to learn flexibly, whilst remaining within the flow of their work, and preferably without leaving the work space to do so.

Empires of the mind

Learning with 'e's

What is required for any nation to succeed is an educational system that is responsive to the needs and demands of its information society, a world where knowledge workers replace production-line workers, and where creative and critical thinking skills are more important than rote learning or following instructions.

Content as curriculum?

Learning with 'e's

How much do children now need to learn in school that is knowledge based? We call this type of learning declarative knowledge, because it is 'knowing that' - in other words, the learning of facts. Yet, in a post-modernist world where all knowledge has become increasingly mutable and open to challenge, facts go quickly out of date. Being able to think critically and create a professional network will be the core competencies of the 21st Century knowledge worker.

Global digital tribe

Learning with 'e's

Another is the Wikipedian clan, which exists to create knowledge. Whereas in real life space, we connect with each other through commonalities such as interest, age or gender ethnic similarities, and identify with like-minded others through our body language (postural echo) and clothing (costume echo), in tribal digital spaces, we express our affinity and interest by liking, favouriting, retweeting, poking, following and tagging.
