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.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Social learning is what makes us human. It''s also more social - learning has been more and more peer-to-peer and not just listening to the teacher. In 2008 I was able via a MacArthur grant to create a social media classroom. The forum, for example, enables the sort of online conversations that are really not feasible using email lists. We also use social bookmarks. The web is not just Facebook; it is not just social classrooms.

PKM – start small

Harold Jarche

Pretty well anyone with a personal computer saves web sites to their Favorites/Bookmarks. I’ve explained it before in Free Your Bookmarks.

There may be some effort in going through these bookmarks and adding more descriptive tags but it could be spaced over a period of time.
