Harold Jarche is a leading authority on Personal Knowledge Management, which he describes as a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, and work more effectively. He has developed a popular Seek-Sense-Share framework which identifies the 3 key elements of PKM (see diagram on the right).
Harold writes about PKM continuously in his blog, and has also helped thousands of people worldwide use this framework in his very popular online workshops, which he runs privately for organisations or publically.
I have talked and written a lot about the use of social media for professional learning, and in particular how social tools have transformed the way I work and learn.
I was recently asked how my own use of social media fits onto Harold’s PKM framework. So I came up with this diagram which shows my own daily PKM routine.
Social media allows for the free and open exchange of information and empowers its users to create their own communities.
In these communities, ideas, questions, connections, and content are what are drive the user experience.
===> For the educator this means engaging, sharing, and collaborating with other educators to build learning communities around their individual professional learning needs as well as creating authentic learning experiences for their students. <===

3. 140 characters will become cooler （这是相对而言的，毕竟140个字的寥寥数语即可让我们快速了解相关信息的核心内容，作为引导作用，这是无与伦比的）
4. The “social dominatrix” continues its grip 5. Visual as a social media weapon of mass destruction
