Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

tools to improve your performance as a knowledge worker. This was a major reason that I started down the path with Work Literacy. That said, I thought it would be worthwhile for me to collect a few of the resources that provide good starting points that can help Knowledge Workers improve their performance using Social Media.

Work Skills Keeping Up?

Tony Karrer

In New Work and New Work Skills , I discuss the fact that most of us have not participated in formal learning since college on foundational knowledge work skills - especially metacognitive skills. Most of us have strong skills in some areas and are much weaker in others simply due to the fact that we acquire our skills in completely ad hoc ways. Our work skills cannot sit still.

Develop Work Skills

Tony Karrer

I sent him a reply and asked for his thoughts on my post New Work. There are also several studies of knowledge worker practices that suggest that a lot of what is effective is quite personal. That said, I think there is a tendency to lean on the skills that we are good at and not use other approaches when they are called for. It's always interesting to hear the perspective of someone with a background in Knowledge Management discussing these things.

New Work and New Work Skills

Clark Quinn

really was all about new work skills - skills we should be learning. Actually, it's also about the fact that there's not really new work as much as there is new work skills. Work Skills Changing Most of us who used to use these things know somewhat know that they really aren't in use anymore. In presentations, I often will cite this as an example of the kinds of changes in work skills that have occurred and are constantly occurring.

Enough Tools for Now

Tony Karrer

In Work Skills Keeping Up? , Still I’ll stick with: The bottom line for the Tilde Effect is that we live in a time of incredible innovation that directly affect the methods we use to work and learn. Our work skills cannot sit still. There's a lot of discussion about 21st century skills to be taught in schools, but what about the rest of us? And the focus of that post is really about general metacognitive tools and methods for knowledge workers.

Tony Karrer

That there is a ‘best’ way to manage knowledge an information? Harold and I have discussed this exact issue before and we are both on the same page that Personal is really important word in Personal Knowledge Management. In fact, Work Literacy is pretty much this topic.

Learned about Learning in 2009

Tony Karrer

It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year. In June 2008, Work Literacy Launched. I’m convinced that we are all struggling to have our Work Skills Keep Up. When I look at my particular skills, methods and tools for 2009 and compare them to 2008, I would say that it’s mostly a question of degree of use and certainly my use of Twitter has grown.

My intent here is to possibly expand the options for the average knowledge worker to be able to search a bit better than they do today. This is likely my last post in the Tool Set series.

Conversation Learning

Clark Quinn

One of the questions being raised this week in the free, online course Work Literacy: Web 2.0 To me, this is a critical part of The New Skills for knowledge workers.

In these cases, a new kind of conversation, distributed work is required.
