PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

Whereas most people are concerning themselves with the new social and collaboration technologies, or how to get people to collaborate, for me the key to successful social learning is how the individual engages in his/her networks and contributes what s/he has learned or is learning along the way. PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning. So how can we help students as well as workers develop the new PKM skills? PKM Social learning

Rather than looking for a single mentor who will spend hours working with you (a pretty big commitment to request of a stranger), work on building your personal learning network or PLN. Harold Jarche’s PKM (Personal Knowledge Mastery) model is a related but more comprehensive structure for workplace learning.

Skills for the Networked World

Wikipedia ( [link] The skills and behaviours like working out loud , building one''s PLN and PKM, digital sense-making , and such require the sort of meta-cognition skills described above. To be able to effectively " work out loud ", an individual needs to be able to parse his or her workflow in a manner that is shareable and captures teachable moments as well. A willingness to keep stretching and moving beyond our comfort zones determine success in this network era.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

New-fashioned” learning skills therefore include developing a trusted network of people as well as sources of information (from both inside and outside the organisation) that individuals can draw from on a daily basis, filtering out the “signal from the noise”, “connecting the dots” in the pieces of information they receive to make sense of it all, and then sharing what they know with individuals for whom it is relevant and who will value it.

"Working Out Loud": Using the Tools We Already Have

Working out loud ranges from specific, objective-driven collaboration (as in the case within project teams) to just sharing of thoughts and ideas with the wider social networks. In effect, it can act as a set of notes of one's day's learning aggregated and filtered via hashtags and shared with the broader world. Small working out loud circles can use Twitter effectively through facilitated tweet chats as well. Here is a Pinterest board on using Pinterest effectively.

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. Sharing knowledge (and experiences) – within a trusted network of colleagues (aka a PLN (Personal Learning Network) or PKN (Personal Knowledge Network). So how effective are your own PKM skills?

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? So too are our personal learning networks. What we need is to exercise personal knowledge management, or PKM. PKM is distinct from organizational knowledge management, which is widely used today. The latter might be defined as, “the process of capturing, developing, sharing, and effectively using organisational knowledge.”

The Future of Work and Learning 1: The Professional Ecosystem

Jane Hart

A PES, therefore, lies at the very heart of Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) process. A PES is therefore all of the following, but much more than any of them individually: a Personal Learning Network (PLN) – a network of trusted connections with whom an individual interacts (and learns from) on a regular basis. In other words, a PES (underpinned by PKM skills) puts individuals back in control of their lives and careers.

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.

They squandered the opportunity to increase their effectiveness by becoming networked learning organizations.” In other words, instead of focusing on designing, delivering and managing one-size-fits-all training solutions, they need to direct their attentions to helping individuals build their PKM (Personal Knowledge Management) techniques so they become efficient and effective informal learners in a networked organisation.

Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers

And the spirit of learning, cooperation and collaboration is in effect killed. Individuals will get their work done by talking to peers, reaching out to their network, and bringing their #pln and #pkm to work. They build an ecosystem of mutually supportive relationships with and between their stakeholders, so the group as a whole can benefit from interactions across the network.

In many other subjects, term papers were effectively show-your-work products that described a train of thought, taking the reader from preliminary premises to the conclusion. Just as silos are subverted by networks, so too may be the practice of knowledge hoarding. Just as Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) benefits the individual , so too does a willful practice of working out loud.
