Learnstreaming and PKM

Harold Jarche

His latest post shows this graphic, which I find reflects many of the concepts of personal knowledge management , but with some additional aspects that may make it easier to understand and do: Dennis has a clear and simple definition for Learnstreaming – publishing your learning activities online for the benefit of you and others. Dennis Callahan has a most interesting Posterous site, called LearnStreaming.

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. 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. Sense-making, or placing information into context, is where the real personal value of PKM lies. Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge.

Why PKM?

Harold Jarche

Over the past year, I collected articles on the subject and saved them to Diigo , a social bookmarking service. This helps me get my ideas together, in a more manageable format than a full-length paper. Knowledge Management for Decision Memories. Lilia Efimova , the original inspiration for my PKM practices, has said that the main problem with personal knowledge management is that we need to take time now, in order to invest in the future.

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. But sense-making, or placing information into context, is where the real personal value of PKM lies. The knowledge gained from PKM is an emergent property of all its activities. Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge.

Network Learning PKM Workshop Notes

Harold Jarche

It is focused on mastering social media for networked learning, and is based on my work with PKM (personal knowledge management) since 2005. I use Seek-Sense-Share as an initial framework to explain how to set up a personalized PKM process: 1. Improving your personal productivity (SENSE & USE). For those who want to dig even deeper, they can explore the PKM categorized posts here or my social bookmarks tagged PKM.

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. As much as I may add feeds into my RSS reader , bookmark web pages or upload photos , these are nothing more than senseless digital constructs until I put them to use. This strikes me as the core of collaborative knowledge work.

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Harold Jarche

Simple standards facilitated with a light touch, enables knowledge workers to capture, interpret and share their knowledge. Personal knowledge management is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. But what we loosely call knowledge, using terms like knowledge-sharing or knowledge capture, is just an approximation. Sensing is how we personalize information and use it.

Starting to work out loud

Harold Jarche

Most people are too busy managing in the industrial/information age workplace and have no slack to try to learn how work in the network age. I strongly suggest that the first step of starting to work out loud, as part of personal knowledge management, has to be as simple as possible. Free Your Bookmarks: This is a very simple shift that only requires a slight deviation from a common practice: saving bookmarks/favourites on your browser.

Prepare for the future of work

Harold Jarche

This is what personal knowledge management is all about. It starts by seeking people and knowledge sources and the Seek-Sense-Share cycle finishes by sharing with communities and social networks. My recent workshops, both online and in person, indicate a need for PKM skills in all types of organizations and for people at all levels, from freelancers, researchers, managers, executives and more.

Taking the time to cross the chasm

Harold Jarche

For example: The CEO who doesn’t see the value of social networks and lumps them all into the “Facebook for fun” category. The President who gets others to handle his information needs without understanding the underlying technology infrastructure that is hampering knowledge-sharing and collaboration across the enterprise. I addressed some of these issues in social media for senior managers , as Michael Cook asked a similar question.

Working online is different

Harold Jarche

I have never met several of my clients in person and the same goes with some of my business partners. I give more presentations online than I do in-person and I must say that online presenting has some real advantages – backchannels; ability to send links; engaged participants who can help others; etc. If economic conditions and events that disrupt air traffic drive organizations to use more online social tools , many people may be in for a shock.

Creating your PKM processes

Harold Jarche

In Sense-making with PKM I described some personal knowledge management processes using various web tools. Personal knowledge management is one way of addressing the issue of TMI (too much information). A sense-making routine can be regularly reading certain blogs and news feeds, capturing important ideas with social bookmarks and then putting ideas out in the open on a blog. Use Social Bookmarks.

my pkm story

Harold Jarche

It has been over 10 years that I have examined, practiced, and developed models for personal knowledge management/mastery. I started down the path of personal knowledge mastery in 2004, inspired by Dave Pollard , Denham Gray , and others. “To To a great extend PKM [personal knowledge management] is about shifting responsibility for learning and knowledge sharing from a company to individuals and this is the greatest challenge for both sides.

Stealth mentoring

One of the ways to accelerate your own growth, part of your personal knowledge management path, is to mentor folks who represent the type of thinking you believe is interesting and important. meta-learning social

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.

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. But what we loosely call knowledge, using terms like knowledge-sharing or knowledge capture, is often just an approximation. ” Knowledge.

Manual, not automatic, for sense-making

Harold Jarche

The actual tools I use for personal knowledge management are quite limited. Google Reader is my aggregator; I link my Delicious & Diigo social bookmark accounts together but mostly use Diigo; I write my half-baked ideas regularly on my blog; and I engage in many conversations on Twitter which I curate here. Those skills are: statistical insight; managing group dynamics; good writing; framing and solving open-ended problems; persuasion; and human nurturing.

Why the Government of Canada needs PKM

Harold Jarche

However, blogging is not enough because managing information overload is more a question of attitude than skills. We need to understand that we’ve been in a state of information overload since the 15th Century when there were more books than one person could read in a lifetime (watch Clay Shirky’s interview on FastForward ). Blogs, or their equivalent, are only one part of the knowledge management equation. social bookmarks ).

Social tools for networks

Harold Jarche

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.

Jane Hart, another colleague at the Internet Time Alliance, has examined social media and learning in the context of the workplace and has noted that much of it is informal (Hart 2010). Making sense of information, both personally and in networks, is becoming a key part of work. Social bookmarks (e.g.,

Innovation through network learning

Harold Jarche

Tim says that innovation is the process of idea management , which makes sense to me. Tim Kastelle introduced me to the concept of Aggregate-Filter-Connect for innovation, which I used for personal knowledge management (network learning) and later changed it to Seek-Sense-Share. Just as we get used to new business models like Amazon or Google, someone like Alvis Bigis knits together an excellent piece on how American business needs to get social.

PKM: aggregate, filter, connect

Harold Jarche

Knowledge Squared equals Power Squared, says Craig Thomler : However the knowledge hoarding model begins to fail when it becomes cheap and easy to share and when the knowledge required to complete a task exceeds an individual’s capability to learn in the time available. This has been reflected in a longitudinal study of knowledge workers that Robert Kelley of Carnegie-Mellon University conducted over more than twenty years.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

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. We constantly go through a process of looking at bits of information and trying to make sense of them by adding to our existing knowledge or testing out new patterns in our sense-making efforts. Making Explicit: There are many ways of making knowledge explicit. Social.

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Harold Jarche

“Every amateur epistemologist knows that knowledge cannot be managed. Education has always assumed that knowledge can be transferred and that we can carefully control the process through education. While knowledge cannot be managed, we can work at managing our own knowledge. That’s what personal knowledge management ( PKM ) is all about. Luis Suarez prefers the term knowledge sharing to knowledge management.

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.
