Social Learning Handbook

Harold Jarche

This post is an excerpt from Jane Hart’s recently published Social Learning Handbook 2014. But both complex and creative work require greater implicit knowledge. Implicit knowledge, unlike explicit knowledge, is difficult to codify and standardize. Implicit knowledge is best developed through conversations and social relationships. In this emerging network era, social learning is how work gets done.

PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

Yesterday, Harold Jarche shared the image on the right, in his post To learn, we must do. Whereas most people are concerning themselves with the new social and collaboration technologies, or how to get people to collaborate, for me the key to successful social learning is how the individual engages in his/her networks and contributes what s/he has learned or is learning along the way. PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning.

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does!

Jane Hart

A few days ago my Internet Time Alliance colleague, Harold Jarche, shared this article, written by Deb Lavoy, with me: Social Business Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does, Neither Does Enterprise 2.0. Social Business” is not about technology, or about “corporate culture.” Learning and self-expression are exploding. The changes we are seeing in Workplace Learning are of course just one part of the changes we are seeing in businesses as whole.

Social Learning, Complexity and the Enterprise

Harold Jarche

Corporations that understand the value of knowledge sharing, teamwork, informal learning and joint problem solving are investing heavily in collaboration technology and are reaping the early rewards. ~ Social learning. Why is social learning important for today’s enterprise? It is with each other that we can make sense, and this is social. Making social learning work.

PKM: our part of the social learning contract

Harold Jarche

Why is social learning important? With social learning, everyone contributes to collective knowledge and this in turn can make organizations and society more effective in dealing with problems. How does personal knowledge management relate to social learning? The whole is greater than the sum of the parts as we build on the knowledge of others.

12 features of supporting social collaboration in the workplace

Jane Hart

I am often asked how to support social collaboration in the workplace. As I showed in my recent blog post , there are some big differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social/collaborative business. So it is not just about adding new social approaches or social media into the training “blend”, s upporting social collaboration is underpinned not only by new technologies but by a new mindset.

Learning in the Networked Era: A year of online professional development opportunities

Jane Hart

The Social Learning Centre is a Learning Community for learning professionals (in both education and the workplace) to support their ongoing professional development by learning from their peers as well as leading industry practitioners and thought leaders from around the world. Since setting up the Social Learning Centre (SLC) earlier this year (which now has over 1,600 members) I have organized a large number of webinars, workshops and other events.

“Learning the new” vs “Learning the old”

Jane Hart

For many people the word “learning” is synonymous with studying, lessons, classes, etc – because that is how we have been conditioned to believe how “learning” happens. We think back to how we learned at school with a teacher, who took us through a topic step by step, in a logical way. Of course this has an important part to play in what we need to learn to do our jobs, but nowadays it is not the only way we need to learn.

The key to informal learning is autonomy

Jane Hart

Jay Cross, the author of the 2007 seminal book, Informal Learning, Rediscovering the Natural Pathways that Inspire Innovation and Performance , recently wrote a blog post in which he explained that although there has been a lot of talk about “informal learning” in the last five years, there has been very little action. He writes: “I thought I had made a sound business case for investing more in informal learning, but few organizations changed their ways.

The 2 views of workplace learning: L&D and Employee

Jane Hart

It is now very clear that in many organisations L&D and employees view workplace learning very differently. Currently , it tends to look something like this: L&D focus all their attention on creating and managing classroom training and/or e-learning. For them this is what workplace learning is all about – making sure people use the stuff they provide for them. There is currently a jarring disconnect between these two views of workplace learning!

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

So what is “new fashioned” learning? Well let’s start by thinking about what “old fashioned” learning is? Old-fashioned” learning is being taught or trained – that is having all you need to know neatly packaged up in a course or programme or workshop or e-learning course. Old-fashioned learning is what we’ve been refining over the last couple of decades as new advances in technology have emerged. This is the essence of “new fashioned” learning.

Supporting self-managed team learning in the organisation

Jane Hart

This is a post in a series that I am writing about how the future role of L&D is moving from “packaging learning” to “scaffolding learning”. In the first post I explained that “packaging learning” involves organizing and wrapping up everything an individual needs to learn in a neat parcel, delivering it to them on a plate, and making sure they do it, whilst “scaffolding” is about supporting learning in many other less top-down organized ways.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Similarly e-learning was also about automating traditional training practices. So whilst e-business is about automation, social business is about innovation.

70:20:10 and the Learning Curve

Clark Quinn

My colleague Charles Jennings recently posted on the value of autonomous learning (worth reading!), So, in IBM’s diagram, they talked about: the access phase where learning is separate, the integration where learning is ‘enabled’ by work, and the on-demand phase where learning is ‘embedded’ They talked about ‘point solutions’ (read: courses) for access, then blended models for integration, and dynamic models for on demand.

My working definition of personal knowledge management: PKM: a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively and contribute to society. PKM is also an enabling process for wirearchy : &# a dynamic two-way flow of power and authority based on knowledge, trust, credibility and a focus on results enabled by interconnected people and technology&#.

Fostering connections by letting go

Harold Jarche

The IBM study shows that CEOs and the companies they manage must constantly evolve to stay competitive. Partners, suppliers, employees and customers want CEOs to communicate with them on a personal level to build trust and to help align them to the organization’s strategy. ” An essential part of enabling such an open organization is nurturing net work skills ; the abilities needed for individual knowledge creators who are simultaneously collaborative workers.

PKM and MOOC

Harold Jarche

In the workplace, thinking of co-workers as “learners” actually may be a barrier to learning. Indeed, I was struck by a recent comment from someone with 15 years of experience in designing face-to-face, blended and online credit programs: I am trying to understand what MOOCs can offer that my understanding of educational design, learning design and online and distance education does not include.

Social snake oil

Harold Jarche

Knowledge management (KM) was a most promising field until it was hijacked by software vendors who were selling IT systems for six figures. The practitioners I talked to about PPI [Personal Productivity Improvement] said they would love to participate in PPI coaching, provided it was focused on the content on their own desktops and hard drives, and not the stuff in the central repositories. I saw this happen with e-learning. Tags: Learning Work

Subject matter networks

Harold Jarche

In a complex world the optimal social form is the multi-organizational network and emergent practices must be continuously developed through cooperation. He or she cannot learn and adapt as fast as a cooperative network. Part of this is in narrating one’s work and learning. I have called personal knowledge management (PKM) – our part of the social learning contract.

Making sense of our world

Harold Jarche

Tweet I define Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) as a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively and contribute to society. George Siemens has made this rather succinct statement about knowledge: When I externalize something, it’s information. When someone connects it in some manner, it becomes knowledge. Knowledge is essentially relatedness/connectedness.

She covers in detail the section on 14 Ways to Acquire Knowledge. These align nicely with the Seek : Sense : Share of personal knowledge management as shown below. Without it, there is no knowledge to share, only others’ work to be re-broadcasted. Looking at PKM as pre-curation shows how important a personal sense-making process is in order to be of service to one’s networks, whether personal or professional.

70:20:10 - A Framework for High Performance Development Practices

Charles Jennings

Others use it more strategically as a way to help them rethink and reposition their wider learning philosophies. The 70:20:10 framework is a simple concept that has developed from work carried out by various researchers over the past half-century that suggests a one-dimensional focus on structured training and development – a rut that many organisations had fallen into – misses the opportunity to exploit learning and development where most of it happens, which is within the workflow.
