Three Models of Knowledge Production

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

And while there are different ways to think of knowledge - processed, procedural, propositional - this model I think adheres to a more basic view. Knowledge construction gives you the ability to create abstractions, to treat raw materials as signs and symbols, and to make meaning out of data.

The revolution brewing in the world of work: Q&A with Rod Collins

US education: a grave failure of national management & character

Steve Denning

The reality is that we are looking a grave failure of national management. Despite these disastrous outputs, the political focus is still on inputs—such as how much money we are pouring into the system or how small our class sizes are—and wind up with little to show for it.

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010.

Seeing motivation with new eyes

Harold Jarche

Where there is a genuine lack of skills and knowledge, training may be required, but it should only be in cases where the other barriers to performance have been addressed. There’s a compensation “system&# and we’ve just accepted it for many decades.

A personal learning journey

Harold Jarche

I became interested in knowledge management (KM) as I was introduced to it in the mid 1990’s while practising instructional systems design (ISD) and human performance technology (HPT) in the military. In the late 1990’s knowledge management was part of our solution suite at the Centre for Learning Technologies ( CLT via The Wayback Machine). Luckily the web had evolved and there were consumer alternatives to enterprise systems.

It has now become my knowledge base and provides fodder for articles and presentations. Cluetrain Thesis #9 says that networked conversations are enabling powerful new forms of social organization and knowledge exchange to emerge. It’s like a large performance support system.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring. But they can’t manage the learning process for you. 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?”

Getting to Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

HPT is a good framework, and is an excellent addition to instructional systems design (ISD), but over time I have found it to be inadequate to deal with a more complex workplace and address the social aspects of work. This takes the best from ISD, HPT and social learning and also incorporates knowledge management, organizational development, network and management theory to look at how we can develop the next practices that will inform networked organizations.

Institutional Memory

Harold Jarche

I have not seen any systems that really do this well, yet. Schank concludes: There is a lot of knowledge in an enterprise that can be used to organize new knowledge that is coming in. People understand new knowledge in terms of what they already know.

A Window Into The Org

Dan Pontefract

Imagine if you will, in the learning space specifically, that every time a new eLearning course was developed, that a new portal, system or application was also introduced where the employee had to log into to access the actual course. Think about Microsoft Sharepoint (particularly the 2010 release), Jive , Drupal , Blogtronix , Telligent , amongst many others as that window. Other systems, be it SAP/Oracle/Lawson ERP, any LMS, various Knowledge Management Systems, even other Web 2.0

PKM is not a technology

Harold Jarche

My definition of personal knowledge management is quite short: PKM: A set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively, and contribute to society. If anyone is selling you a PKM system, they do not understand it.
