From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

But in fact it has been clear for some time that many individuals are already taking responsibility for not only acquiring new knowledge and skills but for a wide range of activities for their continuous learning and professional development. Acquiring new knowledge and skills – e.g. in webinars, online workshops, MOOCs, and through videos and screencasts, etc. How well are you exploiting social media tools and networks for your own professional development?

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. So too are our personal learning networks. 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. Sharing Knowledge.

How Social Networks Can Harness the Power of Weak Ties | Social.

Dashe & Thomson

A lot of the Social Media Mavens , however, are really ranting, not about the technology, but about the human dynamics related to social networking. If we separate the human aspect of social networking from the technology, we can learn a lot more about the power of networks – not just from today’s pundits, but from many years of sociological research on the topic.

Social networking & the workplace

eFront

Dan Pontefract’s recent blog post on companies (not) allowing Facebook at work has prompted me to dust off the topic of how social helps companies get the business of communicating, collaborating and learning done – and hence the business of business done! What most do not realize is that “some 70% of the extra profit to be made through social technologies has nothing to do with marketing. Paul Adams summed the essential problem up nicely in “ Stop talking about “social ”.

Say “cheese” for social networking

Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

There's been a long running discussion around what Knowledge Management is going to look like going forward and whether big systems that manage knowledge are going to be there. Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content. There would be tools like social networks that would allow us to find people inside and outside the enterprise.

There’s a lot of talk about social intranets these days. But what exactly is a social intranet…? Everyone seems to have a different opinion, from a human-centred platform, to the intersection between portals, team sites and social sites , to a system that ties the business’s processes and data to the employee’s social behaviour.

Online social networks, learning and viral expansion loops

Sticky Learning

I respond, 'well I'm becoming more and more interested in the use of social media and microblogging for learning', I then get puzzled looks that say, "too much time on your hands", "what is he talking about?" For me though I see a real role for social media as a platform for business learning. Social media - fad or forever? As I've used each of these I've been struck by how easily this format (social sites) could be used as a platform for business learning.

I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

Social connectedness is essentially a measure of how people interact and to what end. Most employees have far stronger connections through the organization’s hierarchy consisting of layers of manager/direct report relationships. While strong, hierarchical connections also vary greatly across the organization depending on the nature of the work and individual management styles. Such networks are characterized by influence, not authority.

What a Difference a Year Makes

Tom Spiglanin

Last year I was primarily focused on integrating informal and social activities into organizational learning programs. Now I was responsible for them, and there was no way to change them all overnight without falling short on the corporate expectation that a large subset of this critical knowledge be transferred to other employees in some formal manner each and every year. I credit much of that to strong support from those colleagues in my personal learning network (PLN).

Social Learning Cannot Be A Bolt-On Strategy

To facilitate social learning, an organization has to become a social business first. A piecemeal approach to social learning will only serve to confound us further.
