Curation, Just Like PKM, Is About Adding Value To Help Sense-Making | Harold Jarche

Curation, Just Like PKM, Is About Adding Value To Help Sense-Making | Harold Jarche | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"...I want to point out that people with better PKM skills, an ability to create higher value information, and a willingness to share it, will become more valued members (nodes) in their professional networks." (Harold Jarche)

 

Robin Good: In this short article analyzing the PKM (personal knowledge management) process it is interesting to note the strong affinity it has with curation.

 

"The critical part of PKM is in personalizing information and experience, or to use a business term, adding value.

 

Ross Dawson shows five ways to add value to information (my examples/descriptions follow):

 

1) Filtering (separating signal from noise, based on some criteria)

 

2) Validation (ensuring that information is reliable, current or supported by research)

 

3) Synthesis (describing patterns, trends or flows in large amounts of information)

 

4) Presentation (making information understandable through visualization or logical presentation)

 

5) Customization (describing information in context)."

 

More info and examples presented in the article do not seem to include yet the appearance of a trusted news curator as a means to develop such PKM, which although is defined as "an individually created process", it could rely in the near future not just on tools, but also on the filtering and curation work of other humans.

 

Or not?

Thoughtful. 8/10.

Not only is this an interesting insight to better understand how people can add value but this is also applicable for libraries and museums
