Dan Kirsch's curator insight, August 20, 2013 9:37 AM

Interesting piece on expert-to-expert learning, but I'd suggest that what's missing is a recognition of the need to integrate a Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning strategy.  Peter Senge talked about this 20 years ago, and it is still valid today.  Mary Crossan presented opportunities to use forms of knowledge sharing as part of building a learning organization more than a decade ago, and that is still valid today.  


So why then do organizations seemingly struggle with making that "learning organization" effective?  I believe that it is because of a lack of understanding of the integral connection between gaining new knowledge from which organizational learning takes place, which then leads to seeking new knowledge based on what was learned.  And rinse, repeat as necessary.

KM must secure value generation by coming to terms with business requirements. Critical knowledge identification is a crucial input for developing the business strategy and KM actions must secure learning amongst those lines in order to be successful

Knowledge Management and E-Learning (9781439837252) - book available now | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

Edited by Jay Liebowitz and Michael S Frank:

 

"The book's first part looks at KM practices in e-learning and covers techniques and methodologies. The second part contains several case studies looking at applications of KM to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., and Europe. The book concludes with a summary of future trends by experts at these organizations. This book ties knowledge management (KM) with e-learning as complementary approaches, highlighting the leading and emerging work being accomplished in this space. These chapters explain knowledge capture, retention, transfer, and sharing."

Future trends in KM explored as well!

Ken Keiser's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:08 AM

I will have to look into this book to see whether it meets my needs. My organization has an interest in both aspects of KM and e-learning, for internal purposes as well as our constituents and customers.

Bloom's Taxonomy & Visual Knowledge Management: Applying Knowledge in Teams (Part 3)

"Published on Jan 10, 2013: This third video in the series, uses the cognitive "slice" of Bloom's Taxonomy to audit the digital and analog tools our organization uses to apply knowledge as a team.
Category: Education"
from source: http://youtu.be/6rDLzktQ13E

ghbrett's insight:

This is the third video of the trilogy of Cognition from Bloom's Taxonomy by Peter Durand. In this one focuses on the topics of Apply, Evaluate, and Create. Durand describes how the team works through each with different analog and digital tools. He does this in a clear and visual manner that does a great job of explaining the relationship of the tools to the processes as he did in each of the prior two tutorial videos. This series is worth the time to watch for any developer or project manager who has access to the Internet and the tools Durand mentions. Thank you Peter!

Choosing a New CMS Checklist

Choosing a New CMS Checklist | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Choosing a New CMS Checklist:

According to a new white paper, the first-generation CMS (1994-2004) was basically a brochure. Its pages were static and adding content was usually done by a webmaster, which limited new content. The second-generation CMS (2003-2010) had more dynamic websites, but was still not equipped to handle mobile content and maintenance costs were very high. The third-generation CMS (present) focuses on social, mobile, and cloud by making it easier to create content, integrate with social channels, and support new innovations.

 

So what should government agencies be thinking about as they select a new CMS? Below are a few considerations each agency should be thinking of, but for a complete check list, be sure to download Acquia's white paper: A Practical Guide to Selecting a CMS.

ghbrett's insight:

GovLoop is a Knowledge Network for Government, but also a great resource for people engaged in teaching or training online whether for an organization or corporation. This is a timely piece because as Amy points out, the current Content Management Systems are a moving target. Also, the post points to a number of resources to support her recommendations as well as links to more information about the processes. If you like this article and its resources, it may be worthwhile to you to go back to her first two posts on the topic.

Knowledge management presentation McKinsey

"'Knowledge management presentation McKinsey' This Prezi Slideshare from the McKinsey group explains how they use Knowledge Management (KM). They view KM in two forms: Possession based and Practice based. Possession based KM is where 'Knowledge in an entity/object, and can exist separate from people via codification.' Where as Practice based KM is when 'Knowledge is "Knowing" and in in separable from human activity.' The presentation goes on to demonstrate the differences between the two and how Practice based KM is more supportive and productive for ongoing culture of an organization due to it's close contact with those persons who develop and use knowledge both tacitly and implicitly." from source: http://youtu.be/btsTaNQJhW4

ghbrett's insight:

This was a very informative presentation about the two side of Knowledge Management. Over time I have been exposed to Possession and Practice. Intuitively I followed the path of Possession based KM due to my interest in the culture and workforce aspects of KM. This is a brief 10 minute overview, but packs in a lot of good and sound comparisons between the two types of Knowledge Management. I highly recommend it.

 

One additional note: This presentation was developed using Prezi. The designers used the application very well and didn't make the viewer dizzy by spinning, zooming too fast, or using other visual tricks that overwhelmed the content. Again, Well Done!
