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

ID Reflections

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. LinkedIn : It's a professional networking platform that offers various collaboration and sharing features like " Share an Update ", " Upload a Photo " or " Publish a Post ". Since LinkedIn is a professional network, trolling is likely to be controlled.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

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. Such systems are woefully inadequate to meet our personal knowledge needs in this fast-paced network era. Only PKM can meet my needs, which only I know at any given time. Three Key Components of PKM.

Personal in Personal Knowledge Management

Great dialog between Harold Jarche and Stephen Downes around Harold's PKM process … Stephen Downes wrote in response: … what does the concept of a ‘method’ here imply? All of my articles on PKM are descriptive, not prescriptive.

LPI has created a LinkedIn Group to share best practice, resources, experiences and insights into what is working well for organizations leveraging the virtual environment for meetings and learning events.

Research shows that what distinguishes high performers in every field is that they have larger and more diversified personal networks. Leadership today is helping make our networks smarter. Harold Jarche’s PKM model is a great way to start. . The world has never been a more networked place, and yet schools and workplaces still focus on individuals.

Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

Last week I had a presentation around using Social Media and Web 2.0 tools to improve your performance as a knowledge worker. One of the questions that always comes up is: How do I find more information to help me get started? The answer is that this information is a bit hard to come by. There’s a lot out there, but it’s often hard to find information that helps you get start. This was a major reason that I started down the path with Work Literacy.

Revisiting My Learning Journey on Social Media

ID Reflections

In hindsight I realize how immensely lucky I was to have stumbled onto the learning network I did. I didn’t know then that I was building my Personal Learning Network (PLN) and that it would change how I learned and thought forever. Such is the power of a learning network and community. When I trace the path back, I can very clearly plot my Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) approach. On my way to office today, I was pondering about my evolving use of social media.

Ten People Every Learning Pro Should Know

Mike Taylor

I was just talking with colleague the other day about the best way to get started in the Learning & Development field when I saw Amanda Nolan´s Linkedin post asking for some input on people´s favorite resources for new comers. Harold Jarche – Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is an important skill that every professional should have. The good thing is that by connecting with people like this and building your own personal network, you’ll find your way to others.

This set me thinking about how I manage my personal knowledge and from there it led to the tools I use to do in this networked world. The post made me pause and reflect on the position/use of each in my PKM.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.” Every day I would sift through a hundred or more items suggested by my social networks or the search engines. and gets reposted to my Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter feeds. PKM provides a framework for becoming knowledgeable. Curation can boost your profit and help your people grow.

How to make the most out of a conference

E-Learning Provocateur

Given the massive scope of PKM, I needed to narrow my focus. After agonising over the problem for almost a full minute, it dawned on me that the immediate relevance of PKM to the conference attendees lay in how they were going to make the most out of said conference. Extend your network. In the AITD’s discussion forum on LinkedIn, I asked my fellow members whether conferences were obsolete in the digital age.
