Social Bookmarking Tricks for Group Learning

Tony Karrer

The question was: How are you posting the social bookmarking links on your site? So let me answer that question first and then let me mention a couple of other things that you might want to do with Social Bookmarking tools. You can do the same thing on del.icio.us: [link] and most of the other Social Bookmarking services have similar capabilities.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

The folks over at BrandonHall, the learning folks who blog lots of interesting links, pointed out a value of Twitter that not all of us may have seen yet. Twitter as a search engine. This was interesting to me because I’m co-leading a short online workshop introducing social media in a global international development network. One application I try to show is Twitter as social listening. But I never really conceptualized it as search.

DeepL Translator : With an international clientele and blog audience, I often get references in other languages. Diigo : Social bookmarks are a quick way for me to save a web page and find it easily. I have thousands I regularly search but I find I am using it less every year, especially as my blog grows and I have more references here, such as my Friday’s Finds. 1: WordPress : Powers my blog (+3,200 posts), which is the core of my sense-making.

PKM in practice

Harold Jarche

I had a good library of social bookmarks on Diigo [I am shifting to Pinboard ]. I also searched my blog for any clues on how to address the question. My ‘outboard brains’, based on several years of curation gave me a rich set of resources to initially search.

I am using LinkedIn more frequently but have stopped posting to its Pulse platform and keep all my posts on my blog.

Learning in the workplace

Harold Jarche

Using internal blogs for any multi-recipient email is a start. Read blog posts/online articles (keeping up to date outside the organization). Use social bookmarks to share what you’re reading. Search the Social Web using search engines (solve problems). Put together resources on how to search. You may be surprised how few people know how to search effectively.

PKM as pre-curation

Harold Jarche

The act of writing a blog post, a tweet, or an annotation on a social bookmark all force you to think a bit more than clicking once and filing it to an automated system. Content curation is NOT the same as social sharing, reposting/retweeting, liking or favoring a specific content item. I practice PKM for myself and my blog’s primary audience is me. Sharing online makes it social so that I can learn with and from others.

What tools should we learn?

Harold Jarche

Social Bookmarks. Perhaps the simplest way to start sharing organisational knowledge is with social bookmarks. Many people still have their list of Bookmarks/Favourites in their web browser, but when they’re not at their computer these links aren’t accessible. Enter the social bookmark. Social bookmarks are web sites that let you create an account in order to save web pages. Blogs. Blogging is Networking.

My current practice is to summarize what I have found on various social media platforms (Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, private channels) and create a blog post every two weeks.

Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

I had imagined that we would provide relatively simple, free-form tools like Wikis, blogs. Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content. There would be tools like social networks that would allow us to find people inside and outside the enterprise.

PKM: aggregate, filter, connect

Harold Jarche

I see the basis for sharing knowledge in the connected workplace is personal knowledge management or what I’ve called our part of the social learning contract. I filter more with this blog by writing about and commenting on much of what I have read and learned. I connect through this blog and the comments left by others, by leaving comments, via Twitter and in the increasing number of web conferences and discussions becoming available.

PKM may be an individual activity but it is social as well. Research shows that work teams that need to share complex knowledge need tighter social bonds. Social networks, on the other hand, encourage diversity and can sow the seeds of innovation. But it is almost impossible to get work done in social networks due to their lack of structure. So how do you get started micro-blogging on a platform like Twitter?

Informal, social learning is the primary way that knowledge is created in the workplace. As knowledge workers or citizens, PKM is our part of the social learning contract. Without effective PKM at the individual level, social learning has less value. PKM in the context of work : Individuals have their unique methods of sense-making and by sharing cooperatively or working collaboratively they contribute to the social learning mosaic that creates organizational knowledge.
