Another Way to Think about Learning

Another Way to Think about Learning | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

As we industrialized learning and created schools, we needed to measure the system’s efficacy and each child’s progress. What you really want to measure is curiosity, imagination, passion, creativity, and the ability to see things from multiple points of view. But these are hard to measure other than one on one, and even then, the assessment will be subjective. So instead, we measure what a child knows, and from that we infer that the child has learned how to learn. This is the real aspiration we have for our children: learning learning.

Aligning Knowledge Management to business

Aligning Knowledge Management to business | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

The business world is abuzz with talk of Knowledge Management (KM), the new mantra for competitive advantage. Positions such as Chief knowledge Officers, and hierarchies reporting to them, are being envisaged. And backing this hype are the vendors with technologies, they claim, support corporate KM initiatives. Is this yet another fad, a wild goose chase? Or is there some substance to the thesis central to this issue? knowledge has always been central to business.

Just what To Look For In Document Management Software? »

Just what To Look For In Document Management Software? » | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

In the old days businesses depend on filing systems as well as file cabinets to discover the paper they were trying to find.

Today file cabinets are swiftly fading away as even more and more providers rely on electronic documents. The benefits of digital document clearly outweighs the benefits of old fashion paper records.

While businesses are quick to make the change from paper to digital documents, many companies do not know the best ways to appropriately handle and access the electronic papers. They have the scanners and data sources to generate and store the documents, but they do not have the ideal sort of document management software.

Google Search Starts To Reward Curators, Collections and Quality Lists

IdeaEncore:  This is a very exciting step - one that should accelerate the trend toward betting on people/organizations as expert curators creating their own collections.

 

Robin Good: In the overall effort to improve the quality of its search engine result pages Google is continuining to make significant improvements to its search engine.

Starting from now all users worldwide can see Knowledge Graph results showing up on top of search results as a visuable and browsable list of alternative options to explore.

 

Not only.

 

Google is now officially goig after the gathering and curation of the best list, collections and guides on just about any topic.

From the official Google Blog. Read it carefully: "Finally, the best answer to your question is not always a single entity, but a list or group of connected things.

 

It’s quite challenging to pull these lists automatically from the web. But we’re now beginning to do just that.

 

So when you search for [california lighthouses], [hurricanes in 2008] or [famous female astronomers], we’ll show you a list of these things across the top of the page. And by combining our Knowledge Graph with the collective wisdom of the web, we can even provide more subjective lists like [best action movies of the 2000s] or [things to do in paris]."

 

 

Very interesting. 8/10

Getting the best out of tacit knowledge – Part 2 – Focus on the people | Innerteams | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

"In our previous blog Getting the best out of tacit knowledge – Part 1 – Understanding what it is, we took a look at the different forms of information and paid particular attention to how tacit knowledge is derived and what its sources are.

 

Now that we have identified tacit knowledge as being information which is drawn from personal experiences, cultures and biases and thereby affecting us personally we need to look at the practical methods of this within the work place."

Curated by Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org

 

 

This is an infographic of content strategy for nonprofits that comes from the NTEN and Idealware.  The study looks how nonprofits are using different channels - curation, creation, or promotion or community building.   Interesting stat: 80 percent use channels for content creation, with limited effort devoted to other uses.

 

The NTEN Journal in June is entirely devoted to content curation and includes an indepth article about this study (and one from yours truly)

Knowledge and Content Management: A Foundation for Success

If content is king, then most organizations eventually come to recognize that they are servants to information and knowledge. Despite sophisticated servers and storage devices crammed with terabytes of data, relatively few companies are adept at harnessing the content and knowledge tucked away in all corners of the enterprise.

“There is a tremendous amount of valuable information that is never put to use,” observes Stephen Powers, vice president, research director at Forrester Research.

The situation isn’t getting any easier. Today, organizations find themselves buried in unstructured data—including audio and video files, meeting notes and e-mail messages. And as the use of mobile tools and social networking spreads, there’s a growing need to capture, manage and share content and knowledge in new ways.
