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.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

What we need is to exercise personal knowledge management, or PKM. PKM is distinct from organizational knowledge management, which is widely used today.

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.

Developing learning to learn skills

Clark Quinn

Harold Jarche’s PKM is a good start, talking about seek > sense > share. At least, you should be facilitating proper approaches in public forums, like social media. I’m an advocate of meta-learning, that is: learning to learn. Not just because it’s personally empowering, but because it can and should be organizationally empowering. The problem is, little is talked about how to develop it. And I have to say that what I do see, seems inadequate.

While the organizational culture plays a huge role, the embedded collective social psyche/unconscious is also responsible to some extent for employee behaviour.
