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. PKM Social learningYesterday, Harold Jarche shared the image on the right, in his post To learn, we must do.

Connectivism and the modern learner

E-Learning Provocateur

The amount of knowledge in the world is growing exponentially – and to make matters worse, it’s superseding itself quicker than ever before. Instead, we need to exploit technology to extend our knowledge beyond our own brains. We don’t have all knowledge in our heads right now, nor do we necessarily want it.
