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

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.

Jane Hart

Old-fashioned learning is what we’ve been refining over the last couple of decades as new advances in technology have emerged.

If we adapt Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (or PKM ), which is about Seek-Sense-Share as a mechanism to grow our own abilities, to organizations, we can see a different model. So yes, use the tools to hand and leverage the power of technology, but focus on motivations and culture so that the tools will be used in the important ways. social strategy technology

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Of course external factors – such as other people (especially your manager and your team), technology, prevailing culture, general ‘environmental’ factors, and a range of different elements – can support, facilitate, encourage, and help your learning occur faster, better, with greater impact and so on. One of which is “if learning is managed by the learner, what will the technologies that support her look like in the next 3, 5, 10 years?”
