PKM as pre-curation
JULY 12, 2012
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. Content curation is NOT the same as social sharing, reposting/retweeting, liking or favoring a specific content item.
SEPTEMBER 24, 2013
Over the past year, I collected articles on the subject and saved them to Diigo , a social bookmarking service. Have you ever had to write a briefing note, white paper, or give a presentation to your colleagues? I now write blog posts as preparation for presentations.

There is a similar phenomenon with social media. Posting a social bookmark to a service like Delicious does not create additional noise for your networked peers in a social network. I did not post every time I created a new bookmark.

Network Learning: Working Smarter
OCTOBER 22, 2010
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). Social learning is about getting things done in networks. Social bookmarks (e.g.,

What tools should we learn?

Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business
MARCH 4, 2011
Yesterday evening, my time, I attended a rather interesting webcast with Sandy Carter , IBM’s Worldwide Sales Vice President, IBM Social Business, Collaboration, and Lotus Sales and Evangelism, along with Jeremiah Owyang , Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group , on the topic of Why Be Social?
AUGUST 11, 2010

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
DECEMBER 4, 2014
These are summary notes of the presentations at Online Educa Berlin, 2014. If the text uses the first person, it is the presenter speaking, not me. 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. We also use social bookmarks.

A personal learning journey
AUGUST 2, 2010
I had turned my website into my knowledge base ( 2005 ) combining blogs, RSS and social bookmarks to help manage my knowledge flows. I forecast ( 2009 ) that PKM would be an essential part of workplace learning by 2019, but it now seems that will happen much earlier in many sectors with the cheap abundance of social learning tools. Work and learning will continue to blend while stand-up training will be challenged by the ever-present back channel.

Working online is different
APRIL 18, 2010
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. I now take for granted my online personal knowledge management processes, such as social bookmarking; blogging and tweeting, but these habits make online collaboration much, much easier.
Work Literacy Launch

eLearning 2.0 Random Thoughts based on Chat
NOVEMBER 15, 2007
Going back through the back chat / back channel during my presentation was really interesting to me. Since I couldn't read it at the same time I was presenting, it was amazing how much conversation was going on among the participants. I'm not sure I get how anyone could keep up with all the discussion there and listen to my presentation at the same time. presentation were much more sophisticated that audiences at ASTD, ISPI and even the eLearningGuild.
Social tools for networks
JUNE 1, 2009
For example: Social bookmarks let me tag and search a wide array of bookmarks and by making them public they are shared with others, but through no extra effort on my part. Writing this blog gives me a knowledge-base of my thoughts which become articles and presentations but in being public I find others who can add to my knowledge.
