PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning. PKM is also a key skill of being an effective autonomous learner – as we can see from the many individuals who are already organizing and managing their own personal learning strategies in the organization – and consequently a key aspect of BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning). So how can we help students as well as workers develop the new PKM skills? PKM 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? All of my articles on PKM are descriptive, not prescriptive. Studies of Personal Information Management say that what works is often highly personal. In fact, Work Literacy is pretty much this topic.

Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

This was a major reason that I started down the path with Work Literacy. 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.

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. Setting up a SharePoint for a community or work team is very different from teaching them about Personal Learning. In fact, the lack of attention to this topic was the reason I founded Work Literacy in June of 2008. And once you begin to really fall behind on this stuff, your skills will atrophy to the point where you are hopeless.
