PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

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

Personal in Personal Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

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? Isn’t that what we’ve learned there isn’t ? All of my articles on PKM are descriptive, not prescriptive. Take what you need, as there are no “best practices” for complex and personal learning processes. Studies of Personal Information Management say that what works is often highly personal.

Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

This was a major reason that I started down the path with Work Literacy. Subscribe to the Best of eLearning Learning for updates from this blog and other eLearning blogs 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.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But I'm worried, because while I just got through writing about my concern in Using SharePoint that learning organizations seemed to be making the same mistake of Not Preparing Workers for Web 2.0.
