Sense-making with PKM
MARCH 12, 2009
We may learn on our own but usually not by ourselves. People learn socially. One is internally focused, as in “How do I learn this?” and the other is external, as in “Who can help me learn this?”. Web tools to help us go public include micro-blogging; blogs and podcasts.
DECEMBER 11, 2014
In his keynote presentation at Online Educa Berlin last week, Howard Rheingold emphasized co-learning. Since the teacher learns more than the student, let’s all be both teachers and students. Esteemed co-learners, your job is to create new co-learning communities.
Harold Jarche » Blogs are not a “substitute”

Perhaps private philanthropists will step in and finance not-for-profit journalistic centres, where investigative and foreign reporting can be invested in and disseminated by blogs and online sites. bricks and mortar classrooms or educational blogs?
Social media without the BPR
MARCH 18, 2009
Michele Martin just posted some social media baby steps that have worked for her, particularly: Static website => blog. Use social bookmarks and tags ( Delicious or open source variants ) to highlight external information, once again to replace e-mail and to open everyone’s browser “favorites to the rest of the organization. Replace multi-recipient e-mails with internal blog posts and send the link via e-mail or IM.

KMers.org runs a regular TweetChat on knowledge management (KM) issues and today’s was on Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) , with the following agenda: What effective means have we found to aggregate, filter and share information? — @markgould13 For me, PKM is a precursor for social knowledge sharing, so I use Delicious, Twitter and Wordpress. mathemagenic blogging!

Introduction to Social Networking
JUNE 21, 2010
tools are a form of social networking, but for this module we’re going to focus on “ego-centric social networks, those that are focused on individuals, as opposed to networks that build up around objects, such as Delicious, Flickr, Slideshare, etc. Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). Facebook was originally developed for college students to connect, so it has a more informal, social air than you find on LinkedIn.
Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective
Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
MARCH 7, 2013
We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. Online learning begins in the 1980s, it begins in the 1990s and it's born out of two major things. And like the strands of DNA we will see these things repeated through the history of online learning. The first basis is in distance learning. In the mid-1990s, people began to develop learning management systems.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning
Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
MAY 30, 2013
He argues that MOOCs represent the resurgence of community-based learning and will describe how distance education institutions will share MOOCs with each other and will supplement online interaction with community-based resources and services. The proposition I will offer is that MOOCs give us a new way to understand learning, and hence, a new way to understand certain types of learning, such as for example learning that supports diversity in language and culture.
Harold Jarche » Need for collaboration continues to grow
DECEMBER 19, 2008
The need for online collaboration and the integration of work and learning will continue as long as we have the Internet. The aim is to help online community managers learn and practice their role. Their business models depend upon formulaic approaches being standardized (to the extent possible) and while their employees / consultants can read all the blog posts and articles they want to, or develop their personal blog.

100 Conversation Topics
DECEMBER 8, 2008
Today, I saw a post by someone suggesting ways to come up with ideas for blog post topics and they gave some examples. The examples were not all that relevant to most of the readers of this blog, but it definitely sparked a thought for me. Almost every time I have a conversation, I learn something new. Most of the time I learn something, I write a blog post. But I don't have nearly enough time to have conversations, learn and write blog posts.
Harold Jarche » Proficiency-based training
DECEMBER 16, 2008
Learning how to fly an aircraft is an expensive endeavour and each flight costs several thousand dollars. For learning professionals, it is important to design tests that can validate competency. The proliferation of web learning devices, gadgets and tools coupled with the tendancy towards open source knowledge may herald the demise or at least modification of a long extant distinction between formative and summative testing.
