Teach a man to fish… PKM: Figuring out what’s important to you, how to find it, how to keep up with it, how to make sense of it, how to recall it when you need it anew, and how to share it with others — this is ground zero for mining the riches of the web.

The PKM value-add

Harold Jarche

During my online conversation ( recording on YouTube ) with Jane Hart yesterday, we discussed personal knowledge management (PKM) and one very important aspect, in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge.

PKM as pre-curation

Harold Jarche

The most important part of personal knowledge management (PKM), in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. One strength of PKM is the “manual” nature of sense-making activities. The knowledge gained from PKM is an emergent property of all its activities.

PKM and MOOC

Harold Jarche

If we think of the MOOC as a vehicle for shared understanding, and not content delivery, it becomes the collective equivalent to personal knowledge management.

PKM is not a technology

Harold Jarche

My definition of personal knowledge management is quite short: PKM: A set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively, and contribute to society. If anyone is selling you a PKM system, they do not understand it.

PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning. So how can we help students as well as workers develop the new PKM skills? Well this is not something you tell others to do, but something you show others how to do; it therefore requires you to have good PKM skills yourselves.
