Network Learning: Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

Tweet “In the period ahead of us, more important than advances in computer design will be the advances we can make in our understanding of human information processing – of thinking, problem solving, and decision making…” ~ Herbert Simon, Economics Nobel-prize winner (1968). The World Wide Web is changing how many of us do our work as we become more connected to information and each other. This information overload has a direct impact on workplace learning.

Social tools for networks

Effective knowledge sharing is what many organizations do not do well, or as Lew Platt past-CEO of Hewlett-Packard said, “if only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more productive&#. That’s the key benefit of personal knowledge management, in my opinion. If each person can better manage knowledge creation and capture, then it becomes easier to share it. tools is that they are designed for knowledge-sharing as well.

Active sense-making

Harold Jarche

Yesterday, during my presentation on personal knowledge management to IBM BlueIQ I was asked about the role of blogging in my own sense-making processes. These are my half-baked thoughts which I make public in order to share and to learn. In my Seek>Sense><Share model, seeking and annotating information is important but cannot stand on its own. Seeking information is an important foundation to PKM online but it’s of little use without action.

Sense-making

Harold Jarche

The term personal knowledge management (PKM) isn’t about management in a business sense but rather how we can manage to make sense of information and experience in our electronic surround. Personal – according to one’s abilities, interests & motivation (not directed by external forces). Knowledge – connecting information to experience (know what, know who, know how). Management – getting things done.

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). I became a consumer and simultaneously a sharer of online knowledge. personal learning environment.

PKM in 2010

Harold Jarche

Personal Knowledge Management. Personal = according to one’s abilities, interests and motivation (not directed by external forces). Knowledge = the capacity for effective action (know how). Management = how to get things done. PKM is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas. Engaging others can actually make it easier to learn and not become overwhelmed. Information.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

We may learn on our own but usually not by ourselves. People learn socially. In looking at how we can make sense of the growing and changing knowledge in our respective professional fields, I see two parallel processes that support each other. One is internally focused, as in “How do I learn this?” and the other is external, as in “Who can help me learn this?”. Making Explicit: There are many ways of making knowledge explicit. Social.
