PKM is making sense of complexity

PKM is making sense of complexity | |

“Ideas emerge in the complex domain …” which is where creative knowledge workers in a network economy need to be active, probing, and playing. We also need to do shallow dives into the Chaotic domain. Neither of these activities will be helped through automation. If anything, automation will make us lazy, or unaware.


The process of seeking out people and information sources, making sense of them by taking some action, and then sharing with others to confirm or accelerate our knowledge, are those activities from which we can build our knowledge. Managing and sharing information, especially through conversations, are fundamental processes for sense-making in the complex domain. Sense-making is acting on one’s knowledge.


A key principle of PKM is that no one has the right answer, but together we can create better ways of understanding complex systems. We each need to find others who are sharing their knowledge flow and in turn contribute our own. It’s not about being a better digital librarian, it’s about becoming a participating member of a networked organization, economy and society.


Sense-making consists of both asking and telling. It’s a continuing series of conversations. We know that conversation is the main way that tacit knowledge gets shared. So we should continuously seek out ideas. We can then have conversations around these ideas to make sense of them. Sharing closes the circle, because being a personal knowledge manager is every professional’s part of the social learning contract. Without effective sense-making at the individual level, social learning at the organizational level is mere noise amplification.

Inteligencia CoNectiva vs CoLectiva: Lo individual y lo colectivo

Inteligencia CoNectiva vs CoLectiva: Lo individual y lo colectivo | |
Existe un vivo debate en Internet sobre el término “Inteligencia coNectiva”, en contraposición con el de “coLectiva”. Por fijar su origen, esto viene del sociólogo Derrick de Kerckhove, y su Teoría de la Inteligencia Conectiva (o “conectada”), que intenta actualizar las propuestas de Pierre Lévy por considerarlas en exceso “colectivistas”. Según Kerckhove, los individuos se enriquecen al explorar otros puntos de vista en grupo, destacando el impacto que tiene la conectividad en la inteligencia de las personas.

Después viene el gran George Siemens que, con su “Collective Intelligence? Nah. Connective Intelligence”, contrapone directamente las dos inteligencias, afirmando que la Inteligencia CoLectiva “prioriza al grupo” en la búsqueda de una identidad común, mientras que la “CoNectiva” se basa en que cada individuo buscando su propio interés termina aportando valor al grupo: “Collective intelligence places the collective first. Connective intelligence places the individual node first”. Asimismo, hay más lecturas como las de Leticia Soberon (dontknow) que parecen reforzar el componente social del conectivismo, en el sentido de que la Inteligencia CoNectiva funciona también como una herramienta para mejorar colectivamente.

Twitter in the classroom

Twitter in the classroom | |
Today I had an interesting exchange of views on Twitter... about Twitter. I mentioned that I strongly encourage the use of Twitter in my classes. Someone remarked that they thought it was strange that I 'interposed media between myself and my students.' Well, firstly, this sounds as though I am deliberately trying to hide behind technology, which is patently untrue. If I wanted to hide behind technology, I would stay at home, and use my laptop and 'death by PowerPoint' to lecture to my students from a safe distance. I would probably turn off my camera too, so I didn't have to shave or comb my hair. No, you can be assured that if I use any technology with my students, it is for a clearly thought through, and logical reason that supports good pedagogy.

Open Source Workers

Open Source Workers | |
Openness enables knowledge-sharing, which fosters innovation through a diversity of ideas. Trust emerges in networks that are open and transparent. This is how open source software is developed. There are lessons to learn for open source work.

Consider open source software versus software as a service. If you do not own the software, you do not really own your data, as they are usually useless without the software to use them effectively. The same can apply to labour. If the workers do not own the platform that provides the work, then they may be of little economic value without it. Über is an excellent example of platform capitalism that turns labour into an easily replaceable commodity. Some day that labour may even be automated, eliminating the need for drivers.

How to use LinkedIn to build a student Portfolio

How to use LinkedIn to build a student Portfolio | |
Students under your tutelage will graduate eventually and will be out looking for colleges or jobs. They might do this the old-fashioned way by looking through the newspaper and pounding the pavement. The other possibility is that they’ll take advantage of Web tools and utilize our vast worldwide online network to secure their future careers. What better time to start preparing for this than during their formative years in school?

We need to get the Internet of Things right

We need to get the Internet of Things right | |
It seems everything is connected to the Internet: socks, shoes, shirts, hats, glasses, appliances, beds, homes, drones, cars and even diapers. Yet, for the Internet of Things (IoT) to play a role in shaping our future, we need to get a few things right. The statement “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it” has never been more applicable. At the events and conferences I’ve attended this year, it’s clear that while everything is getting connected, few things are actually connected.

Some of you may recall the term “network of networks.” We are in real danger of making the same mistake again — only this time on a massive scale. With IoT, we are not taking full advantage of the Metcalfe effect where value increases exponentially as more things are connected. Instead, we are creating islands of technology.

El paso siguiente a Google es hacia una inteligencia colectiva reflexiva

El paso siguiente a Google es hacia una inteligencia colectiva reflexiva | |

"El algortimo de Google está alimentado por los usuarios. Es decir, Google elige qué mostrar y que no, pero trabaja básicamente sobre esa inteligencia colectiva, y lo hace con fines comerciales. El próximo paso es alcanzar una inteligencia colectiva reflexiva. Deberíamos ser capaces de observar los procesos cognitivos que estamos creando en forma conjunta y mediante los cuales todos nos unimos. Observarla para conducirla, porque hoy no sabemos qué es lo que estamos haciendo en forma conjunta. Tenemos que poder administrar lo que sale de la interacción de las personas", indicó.

Agile KM from 'SMART goals' to 'practice SMARTS'

Agile KM from 'SMART goals' to 'practice SMARTS' | |

What I propose instead is to think of SMARTS as a practice code to turn useful habits into our behavioural identity and eventually let us all become a strong network node in our collective sense-making. The practices mentioned below can actually change our identity towards:

  1. Speedy
  2. Multi-purpose
  3. Anticipating
  4. Reflective
  5. Trustworthy
  6. Sharing and showing this approach together

[Infographic] 4 important aspects of audio narration in eLearning courses

[Infographic] 4 important aspects of audio narration in eLearning courses | |
Effective audio narration goes a long way in enhancing the efficacy of an eLearning course by reducing the cognitive load. The modality principle states that the learner can learn better from animations and narration than just animations and on-screen text.

But, how can you see that your online training course is narrated effectively? What are the factors you need to consider to ensure that your elearning course is top-notch? Well, you need to focus on a few critical aspects. Here is an info-graphic that lists them and explains why they are very important.

eLearning Interactivity: The ultimate guide for eLearning professionals

eLearning Interactivity: The ultimate guide for eLearning professionals | |

Interactivity has been proven to have a significant impact on the effectiveness of the eLearning process. In this article you will find everything you need to know about eLearning interactivity, as well as the most essential ways in which eLearning interactive methods and techniques affect the learning process.

eLearning interactivity is defined as the “dialogue” between learners and eLearning tools through which learners become engaged and involved in the eLearning process. It is a key element of the actual eLearning course design process, and it has proven to be a practice that adds outstanding value to your eLearning course. It involves forms of action or reaction on learners’ behalf, in order for them to achieve results or reach a conclusion. eLearning interactions may include multiple choice quizzes, tests, eLearning scenarios, simulations, animation videos etc, that help learners to deepen their understanding of the subject matter through experimentation, dealing with unpredicted circumstances, or even learning from their mistakes.

10 essential skills for the 21st Century worker/learner

10 essential skills for the 21st Century worker/learner | |
Here is an interesting infographic from university of Phoenix featuring 10 essential skills for the successful worker.Going through the list we remarked that these skills are important not only for a successful work for successful learners as well. In fact, these skills represent the ethos of the 21st century epoch, an era where knowledge economy and the social capital are so interdependently connected that it becomes extremely hard to decipher the dividing line between the two.

The top 10 skills for the 21st century worker, according this visual, include:

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web | |

While the Internet has given educators access to a steady supply of Open Educational Resources, the educational rubrics commonly shared on the Web are generally in the form of static, non-semantic presentational documents or in the proprietary data structures of commercial content and learning management systems.

With the advent of Semantic Web Standards, producers of online resources have a new framework to support the open exchange of software-readable datasets. Despite these advances, the state of the art of digital representation of rubrics as sharable documents has not progressed. This paper proposes an ontological model for digital rubrics. This model is built upon the Semantic Web Standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), principally the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL).

The power of AGILE Instructional Design Approach

The power of AGILE Instructional Design Approach | |
The term AGILE is becoming increasingly popular these days and for good reason. It offers a broad spectrum of advantages to eLearning professionals, as it makes the eLearning design process more effective, efficient and practical. But what exactly is AGILE and what benefits can it offer you when developing your next eLearning course?

The AGILE instructional design approach is a project-oriented approach introduced by Conrad Gottfredson, a performance-support practitioner. It encompasses the five stages involved when designing eLearning experiences: Align, Get set, Iterate and implement, Leverage and Evaluate.

According to Gottfredson, AGILE instructional design is geared toward meeting the needs of today’s organizations to be “agile” and adaptive. Organizations are always looking for faster and more efficient ways to train their employees and improve on-the-job performance. AGILE is an iterative process that gives them the opportunity to use collaboration, feedback and iterations to streamline the eLearning design and development process. This does not only speed up eLearning course development time but it also makes the finished eLearning deliverable more successful.

8 examples of transforming lessons through the SAMR Cycle: Emerging education technologies

8 examples of transforming lessons through the SAMR Cycle: Emerging education technologies | |
The SAMR Model for integrating technology into teaching, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has gained a good deal of exposure in recent years. “SAMR” is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model provides a technique for moving through degrees of technology adoption to find more meaningful uses of technology in teaching and move away from simply using “tech for tech’s sake”.

Re-pensando las Altas Capacidades: Una aproximación evolutiva

Re-pensando las Altas Capacidades: Una aproximación evolutiva | |
La alta capacidad es la manifestación del rendimiento que se encuentra claramente en el extremo superior de la distribución en un dominio de talento específico, incluso en relación con otros individuos de alto nivel de funcionamiento en ese dominio. Más aún, la alta capacidad puede verse como un proceso de desarrollo en el que, en las primeras etapas, el potencial es la variable clave; en etapas posteriores, el rendimiento es la medida de la alta capacidad; y en los talentos completamente desarrollados, la eminencia es la característica que hace acreedor a esta denominación. Tanto las variables cognitivas como las psicosociales juegan un papel esencial en la manifestación de la alta capacidad en cualquiera de los estadios del desarrollo, son maleables y necesitan ser deliberadamente cultivadas (Subotnik,Olszewski-Kubilius, & Worrell, 2011, p. 7).

[PDF] Facebook guide for Educators

[PDF] Facebook guide for Educators | |

Admittedly, the use of Facebook in education is a contentious topic that raises a lot of controversy and debate among educators. Some view it as irrelevant social media platform to be used in educational settings, the other camp sees a potent tool with a conceivable educational potential. Certainly, as a social media website, Facebook poses some serious caveats that teachers have to attend to. Issues of safety, irrelevant content, distraction, vulnerability…etc are some of the things to be addressed with students before incorporating Facebook in any  instructional methodology.

Innovación: La clave de tu éxito profesional (Parte II) | |

El problema mayor es que los jóvenes de la actual generación no dominan las competencias digitales que está demandando el mercado laboral. Lamentablemente, el 80 por ciento de lo que se enseña en la universidad NO tiene utilidad alguna en el mundo global en el que nos encontramos. Y esto no se trata de una mera referencia de terceros, sino de informes provenientes de diferentes organismos y firmas relacionadas con el trabajo y la educación que lo confirman a diario. Los grados de discrepancia entre las percepciones universitarias y las empresariales sobre cómo los estudiantes están preparados para insertarse a la fuerza laboral siguen aumentando:

The difference between Skilled Learners and Good Students

The difference between Skilled Learners and Good Students | |

The skilled learners of the world don’t always excel in their studies. And I don’t mean Gates and Einstein. I’m talking about the huge number of people who are passionate about knowledge, who have a real knack for remembering facts, who are self-taught musicians and casual scholars. People who ignore homework because it’s boring to them, fail geometry because their teacher makes it boring to them, don’t listen to lectures because they’d rather absorb the information themselves. These people aren’t good students; they’re natural learners. And we’re doing them–and the world– a disservice by treating them like second class citizens.

“I spend a lot of time these days talking and writing about how we are asking teachers to redefine what it means to be a teacher,” writes David Warlick in his popular 2¢ worth blog. “But perhaps a significant part of this exercise in redefinition should involve our students– an explicit remolding of perceptions of these youngsters, in order to fully shift the relationship between student and teacher, learner and master learner.”

Here’s how he breaks down the difference between learners and students in his own chart:

Vamos hacia la transdisciplinariedad, la narración transmedia y el transhumanismo

Vamos hacia la transdisciplinariedad, la narración transmedia y el transhumanismo | |
La eduación nos conduce a tiempos pasados, uniformizados, cerrados y por tanto aislados, en cambio los aprendizajes, nos llevan a una mentalidad abierta, a un mundo de diversidad, un lugar donde las diferencias sumen y donde los aprendizajes representan este cambio….

Por tanto cuando algunos investigamos lo hacemos mirando todos estos asptectos, ya lanzamos nuestras ideas hace mucho tiempo y van siendo recogidas, por ejemplo Udacity, Cousera, EDX…escogieron los microaprendizajes, algo que ha hecho que las Universidades, como dice muy bien Kurzweill “ya no tengan sentido en la actualidad ni en el futuro”, y no porque hayan que desaprecer perse, sino porque su papel nlo hacen otros, con mejor calidad y a menor precio, por tanto…..

Pero eso hay que explicarlo bien, porque no quiere decir que la gente que esta en la universidad deba desaprecer, no, sino que debre readaptar su rol, eso por supuesto, pero hacerlo sin miedo y con todo el convencimiento del mundo.
