simply PKM

Harold Jarche

PKM = personal knowledge mastery. Why is PKM necessary? Most of us work with others. We cannot do everything alone. We need advice and guidance on complex matters. This requires a knowledge network. We most readily take advice from people we trust.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A few weeks ago I attended the IBM Blockchain Summit 2017 in New York. The Summit included a number of talks and panels, and - most important, - presentations of concrete blockchain use cases IBM has been working on in a number of areas, including finance, supply chains and healthcare.

The A **e Survival Guide: My Next Book

Bob Sutton

The No A **e Rule was published 10 years ago. It focused on building civilized workplaces. Yet the most frequent question that it provoked were variations of "Help. I am dealing with an a **e (or a bunch of them), what do I do?"

What you learn not as important as how you learn!

Clark Quinn

I’m going a bit out on a limb here, with a somewhat heretical statement: what you learn is more important than how you learn ! (You You could say pedagogy supersedes curricula, but that’s just being pedantic. ;) And I’m pushing the boundaries of the concept a bit, but I think it’s worth floating as an idea. It’s meta-learning, of course, learning how to learn! The important point is to focus on what’s being developed. And I mean this at two levels.

These are my personal learning tools, and are ordered according to Harold Jarche’s Seek-Sense-Share models, as ways to find answers, to process them, and to share for feedback: Google Search is my go-to tool when I come across something I haven’t heard of.

humility is the new smart

Harold Jarche

In Humility is the New Smart , the authors put forth a new mental model and management framework, based on extensive research on what the ‘smart machine age’ (SMA) will look like. “We

The Other Thing Educators Don't Know: Learning

Nine Shift

Y ou would think. You would really think educators would be specialists in how we learn. Guess again. In addition to not knowing about the Knowledge Society - - their mission of which is to prepare students for - - educators do not know about learning, especially learning styles. In the last century treating every student "equally" meant treating every student the "same." In this century, every student learns a little (or a lot) differently.

Alien knowledge

David Weinberger

Medium has published my long post about how our idea of knowledge is being rewritten, as machine learning is proving itself to be more accurate than we can be, in some situations, but achieves that accuracy by “thinking” in ways that we can’t follow.

Open Word—The Podcasting Story

Doc Searls

Nobody is going to own podcasting. By that I mean nobody is going to trap it in a silo. Apple tried, first with its podcasting feature in iTunes, and again with its Podcasts app. Others have tried as well. None of them have succeeded, or will ever succeed, for the same reason nobody has ever owned the human voice, or ever will. Other, of course, than their own.). Because podcasting is about the human voice. It’s humans talking to humans.

A Mass Outbreak Of Common Sense

Euen Semple

I heard this phrase in conversation with a client today (stated as an aspiration rather than something already achieved I hasten to add!) I wrote it down immediately. It resonated. It excited me. In many ways it is helping people work towards this potential that motivates me. But why limit the idea to an organisation? How about a mass outbreak of common sense nationally? Why not globally? Naïve? Simplistic? We know what makes us happy and what causes us pain.


Educators Don't Know Basic Economics: Plumbers Don't Create Jobs

Nine Shift

There's two important critical things educators don't know. One is the economics of the Knowledge Society. An educator from Spokane, Washington, recently engaged me in a discussion of jobs and job training. He cited the shortage of plumbers and welders in Spokane, saying that plumbers make more than he does. This may be true. I don't question it. .

A Story- - And Lesson- - Everyone Should Know

Nine Shift

Every parent, teacher, educator, government official, and workplace manager - - everyone-- should know this story. It is a true story, with a lesson, my brilliant co-author Julie Coates tells. When Thomas Edison was in school, he was regarded by his teachers and head master as being "addled" - - slow, unable to learn. Thomas brought home a note from the headmaster one day and gave it to his mother.
