professional learner’s toolkit

Harold Jarche

Jane Hart describes a Modern Professional Learner’s Toolkit as having several components: resources, networks, devices, etc. Each browser has different security and privacy settings, depending on what type of resource I need to access.

Learning in the workplace

Harold Jarche

Use social bookmarks to share what you’re reading. Search the Social Web using search engines (solve problems). For example: Compfight for images; GoogleGuide ; Tools for Search ; Four Ways to Search the Social Web.

What tools should we learn?

Harold Jarche

Social Bookmarks. Perhaps the simplest way to start sharing organisational knowledge is with social bookmarks. Many people still have their list of Bookmarks/Favourites in their web browser, but when they’re not at their computer these links aren’t accessible.

Social Learning Examples

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers. Jane mined the submissions of her delightful tools database and came up with 100+ ways to use social media for learning. Tags: social tools

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. Narration of work in social networks is flow.

Prepare for the future of work

Harold Jarche

It starts by seeking people and knowledge sources and the Seek-Sense-Share cycle finishes by sharing with communities and social networks. The more you give to your networks, the more you will receive.

In addition, I played with several feed readers (currently Feedly) and a series of social bookmark platforms (Furl; Magnolia; Delicious; Diigo). For me, there was little doubt that something like PKM was necessary to keep up in the network era.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits. 7) Is there a method to map different models of learning to different types of projects?

“17 Things we Used to Do”

Andy McAfee

I perceive myself to be part of a single network of friends on Facebook, but I’m part of two very different networks on Twitter: the people I follow (I select these people because I want to get information from them), and those who follow me (these people select me because they want to get information from me). i use twitter to serve as a journal of my life and my relationships as well as my social bookmarking tool (esp when i'm on my mobile device).

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done.
