Tinkering and Playing with Knowledge

Nancy White

I love the idea of tinkering and find it central to the practice of stewarding technology for ourselves, our communities and networks. Brown talks about a networked world as an open source world that facilitates this tinkering. Finally, I wouldn’t discount the fact that you can see breaking open devices as a leisure activity, rather than something you do out of economic necessity, as influencing the movement.

countering populism

Harold Jarche

I would say that populism is the first refuge of a scoundrel and a literate, engaged, and networked citizenry gives no such refuge. Every medium — such as digital networks — 1. She addressed these tribes not by creating a new tribe, but by discounting the tribal perspective and focusing on the population’s common humanity instead. But education alone is not the answer to the constant outrage we are witnessing as many societies polarize on political lines.

Need Your Feedback on my Triangulating Thinking

Nancy White

Lilia has written about it to help me, but now I need my network to help me sharpen my thinking. Triangulating for Success: a practitioner’s experience using external networks to leverage learning and outcomes within organizations and institutions. This pattern has three phases: support and personal validation, connection to a community and/or network for practice and learning and finally, external validation. Phase 2: A community of practice, a network of learning.

There aren't a lot of KM conferences left but the long established events have kept going and continue to attract good speakers and audiences. The main UK event is still organised by ARK, details here.

Sense-making for success

Harold Jarche

Those who succeeded were able to seek and build new networks in order to make sense of the changing environment, and then share with their new peers, scattered across the globe. I have created an updated 15-minute video overview of PKM, the seek-sense-share framework, and some ideas on how to do-it-yourself, with the help of your network. The next Online Personal Knowledge Management Workshop starts 28 October, with discounted prices for early sign-up. image by @gapingvoid.

connect, challenge, create

She addressed these tribes not by creating a new tribe, but by discounting the tribal perspective and focusing on the population’s common humanity instead. We live in a network society. Faculty should be able to model the behaviours of engaged network learners.

Business Social Media Benefits

Clark Quinn

For the latter, I was asked to address the question: “what businesses can learn from allowing employees to access social networking sites, and how allowing social networking can benefit businesses?&# It’s the network. If you block social media at work, they’ll take the ‘social media cigarette break’ and step outside with their phones (you can’t stop the signal), because they need their network to answer questions, share ideas, and more.

PKM Workshop 2013

Harold Jarche

There are a few ways to develop skills to be an effective sharer of knowledge in a networked enterprise. You can start, as I did, by researching sense-making and online cooperation in knowledge networks, try out different methods, and then develop your own. You could also get coaching and mentoring from people who have developed good professional network learning skills. Discounted rates are available to the first 20 participants, so sign up early.

On Research and Academic Diversity

George Siemens

Before networks in education were cool enough to attract MacArthur Foundation, there were open online course and people writing about connectivism and networked knowledge. One approach is to emphasize loosely coupled networks organized by ideals through social media. This isn’t to discount social networked organization or alt-ac. In my previous post, I mentioned the release of our report Preparing for the Digital University.

Narrative research

Dave Snowden

Discounts for any existing network member. There are still a few places on the narrative research seminar coming up in Amsterdam next week. We keep these small as they are designed to understand the theory of the approach, and also to engage in design of advanced applications. This one is being hosted by one of our experienced practitioners, Jochum (who co-authored an article with me on narrative) so there will be a change to see some of their projects as well.

Only people can let knowledge flow

Harold Jarche

I felt that my network, my trusted network which I worked hard to maintain, cultivate, nurture, trust and grow was going to be exploited by other individuals within the organisation who saw me as their ‘free ride’ to some quick answers. If there is a genuine, authentic opportunity to share and learn and be respectful of each other’s networks then I have no problem with it at all.

Mobile Payments - a Long, Relentless War of Attrition

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Apple Pay embraced a number of industry standards, including NFC (near-field communications) for contact-less payments; secure element , a dedicated device chip; and network-based tokenization to protect sensitive financial data. In addition, Apple collaborated with the credit card networks, several banks and a number of merchants in the development and deployment of Apple Pay, as well as publishing the APIs so developers could embed Apple Pay services in their own apps. .

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

John Hagel

When we're gripped by fear, we have a natural human tendency to magnify perception of risk and discount perception of reward. These action groups are united by a loosely coupled network that enables them to seek help from others and to observe and learn from the diverse actions of each group what actions can achieve the greatest impact.

The Dark Side of Technology

John Hagel

  These digital technologies are also increasing uncertainty – we are more and more vulnerable to extreme events, Taleb’s “black swans”, that come out of nowhere, gather enormous force very quickly through a global network of connections, and disrupt all of our carefully laid plans, our carefully compiled knowledge bases and our comfort levels. I’m going to disrupt the Silicon Valley script. You know the one. 

Why PKM?

Harold Jarche

To remain current in the network era, people must constantly improve their talents and focus on initiative and creativity. When you are only as good as your network, PKM becomes a necessity. It is a place to start thinking about networked learning, professional development, and staying current in the digital surround of the network era. The limitations of hierarchies are becoming obvious as more value is found in networks outside the organization.

PKM and small business

Harold Jarche

PKM could get them to engage in networks that can help their business. Small business is not immune to automation , but they could be much more flexible than large enterprises in adapting to the network era. If any small business owners are interested, I will gladly offer a discount. There is one group that probably has the most need for professional development but has the least time – owners of small businesses. My parents owned a small business.

The role of the Enterprise Learning Community Manager #elcm

Jane Hart

Workplace learning in the truest, fullest sense is not something that can be managed, technologically , in a LMS or “learning platform” (even if it does include social features) - but is something that needs to be underpinned, technologically , using the VERY SAME social collaboration platform that powers the work – as well as encouraged in external personal and professional (learning) networks.
