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

This Week on #TalkTech: Apple Slows Innovation, PKM Not a Technology, and Digital Natives

Bottom-Line Performance

The new smartphone (finally) has access to 4G LTE networks and has a thinner, taller screen. Topic 2: Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is Not a Technology…so how do we help organizations learn informally? Harold Jarche, writer and consultant on social learning and PKM, often explains that informal learning is how we naturally learn and NOT a product that can be purchased. PKM is not a technology, an enterprise system, a piece of software, or a platform.

Personal Learning Networks: For Ongoing Learning in a Connected World

ID Reflections

The four topics we are planning to deep dive into in the first two weeks are: a) Networked learning, b) Personal Learning Networks, c) MOOCs, and d) Communities of Inquiry. Here''s a list of related posts on learning in a networked world. Ubiquitous connectivity, mobile devices and social platforms ensure that work can happen from anywhere. Learning networks are based on the theory of Connectivism, or learning from diverse social webs.

Do You Need a Mentor or a Network?

Experiencing eLearning

Personal Learning Networks. 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. In Jarche’s Seek – Sense -Share model , you Seek knowledge from your network and Share what you learn back to the network.

Supporting workplace learning in the network era is more than delivering courses through a LMS

Jane Hart

“It takes much more than courses delivered through a learning management system to support workplace learning in the network era.” However, they need access to their learning networks while at work, and this is often a challenge. Reduce these barriers, and support PKM practices, and the organization will benefit.” Social learningHarold Jarche, in his recent post, Supporting workplace learning , uses a great little diagram to show that -.

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

As technological capability increases, the cloud becomes pervasive, and the power of social and mobile become progressively evident, these will transform the way we function. How do we help organizations see that social and informal learning is not a new and fancy way to learn but an essential requirement in a complex, rapidly changing, and uber connected world? Technology with the characteristics of social , mobile , and personal are already changing user behaviour.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

But let’s be clear, even when newer social and informal approaches are added to this old model that let you learn things a little differently, if your learning experience has in any way been organized (and/or managed) by someone else , this is still “old fashioned” learning. We experience this constant flow of new information in our personal social media channels every day, and many people are already developing new skills to help them make sense of all this new information.

Workplace Learning in a World “Beyond Automation”

Learnnovators

Increasingly the human workforce will have to take on the unstructured work that requires skills like judgement, decision making, pattern sensing, emotional intelligence, social intelligence, and more. The table below captures the shifts as I see it: I have been writing about social and collaborative learning, the importance of communities of practices and networked learning skills like building one’s PLN and PKM for some time now.

12 features of supporting social collaboration in the workplace

Jane Hart

I am often asked how to support social collaboration in the workplace. As I showed in my recent blog post , there are some big differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social/collaborative business. So it is not just about adding new social approaches or social media into the training “blend”, s upporting social collaboration is underpinned not only by new technologies but by a new mindset.

Skills for the Networked World

ID Reflections

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. The Seek>Sense>Share PKM model described by Harold Jarche and similar model by others rest on our critical thinking and cognitive abilities. As is evident from the diagram, when we move to CoPs, we have a mix of strong and weak social ties focused around a specific domain.

Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers

ID Reflections

I love this description from Jane Harts post: FAUXIAL LEARNING is about forcing people to use social media in courses – or even in the workplace – and then confusing compliance with engagement (and even worse) learning. As an Instructional Designer and L&D Consultant, I am often asked questions like: 1.What social collaboration platform should we use? Does this mean the employees are not engaging in "social learning"? Collaboration culture social learning

7 Strategies to Facilitate "Working Out Loud"

ID Reflections

Today, most organizations are caught between the crossroads of traditional training (top down sessions, expert created content, L&D owned programs) and the modern workplace learning practices reflective of networked learning, collaboration and cooperation, user-generated content, ongoing conversation and debate, open feedback and transparent sharing. That’s supposed to be the value of the network, right? But I’ve just found that the network is fickle.

Working Out Loud 101 | Some Thoughts

I happened to mention " working out loud " as a practice that is fundamental to social and collaborative learning, and drew a completely blank stare. While "social learning" as a phrase, concept and strategy is fairly well-known by now, the concept of "working out loud" hasn't yet garnered that level of popularity.

Revisiting My Learning Journey on Social Media

ID Reflections

On my way to office today, I was pondering about my evolving use of social media. In hindsight I realize how immensely lucky I was to have stumbled onto the learning network I did. As I see colleagues and friends and peers still struggling to comprehend how to use social media for “learning” and often expressing skepticism, I thought I’d share my journey in brief. Just like I am blogging now to delve into how I’ve learned from social media and my PLN.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

ID Reflections

It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. What working out loud requires is for us to collectively go back to the days when we swapped stories sitting around a fire, the only difference being that the fire has been replaced by a participative medium like a social collaboration platform, communities of diverse individuals and a global mindshare. Consistent practice leads to a network that is open, diverse and deep.

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

ID Reflections

This thought was triggered by David Kelly's presentation - Social Media, Social Learning, and Curation where he highlights the role each of the social tools/platform can play in our sharing and learning. 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. Since LinkedIn is a professional network, trolling is likely to be controlled.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

Although a “social business” is powered by new social technologies, it is not the technology itself that makes the difference, it’s not about layering social approaches on the old industrial age thinking, but a fresh, new mindset and approach to working and learning. So whilst e-business is about automation, social business is about innovation. Now, let’s be clear about what a social business is. LEARNING IN A SOCIAL BUSINESS.

Social Learning Cannot Be A Bolt-On Strategy

Learnnovators

I recently wrote about the challenges of integrating social learning in the workplace. Even as I was mulling over the topic and browsing through Dion Hinchcliffe’s posts for insights on social business, I had a moment of epiphany. Social Learning and social business go hand in hand. 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.

MOOCs in Workplace Learning - Part 5: Skills Learners Need Today

ID Reflections

Having said that, MOOCs require certain skills from participants, which I like to describe as " learning how to learn in the networked world." Because of its blended nature - formal course content with informal and social learning woven around it - MOOCs cannot be a top down endeavour. Networks have to be consciously created, cultivated and nurtured. Collaboration moocs pkm wol Workplace Learning

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.

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.

The knowledge sharing paradox is that enterprise social tools constrain what they are supposed to enhance. Why would someone share everything they know on an enterprise network, knowing that on the inevitable day that they leave, their knowledge artifacts will remain behind?

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.

The Future of Work and Learning 1: The Professional Ecosystem

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. Social learning

Demystifying Working Out Loud

It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. An approach that implies networking for personal benefits. The workforce is ubiquitously connected, networked, and mobile. Just as we would not have survived as a species had our ancestors not swapped those early stories, our survival and relevancy as individuals and organizations today may well be threatened if we fail to tap into the wider network of diverse and global intelligence.

The discussions are very helpful in formulating my thoughts on the issues of social learning tools, technologies and impacts on performance. The areas I am often asked is: "How do we use social learning and networking to improve performance at work?" What is the role of the leader, trainer and manager in implementing the social learning process? Social learning is focused on interactions of users.

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.

The Changing Face of Work and Workplace Learning

What will emerge is a network of diverse and connected workers skilled at PKM learning together to develop skills they can apply to their work. The nature of organizations with their hierarchical structure is already giving way to more networked and democratic workplaces. Social media and open resources like MOOCs will foster an era of self-driven learners who know what they need, where to find it and take their pick. I am not the kind to crystal gaze.
