PKM - Personal knowledge management - GCP
Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a collection of processes that a person uses to gather, classify, store, search, retrieve, and share knowledge in his or her daily activities (Grundspenkis 2007) and the way in which these processes support work activities (Wright 2005). It is a response to the idea that knowledge workers increasingly need to be responsible for their own growth and learning. (Smedley 2009) It is a bottom-up approach to knowledge management (KM), as opposed to more traditional, top-down KM. (Pollard 2008) History and Background[edit] Although as early as 1998 Davenport wrote on the importance to worker productivity of understanding individual knowledge processes (cited in (Zhang 2009)), the term personal knowledge management appears to be relatively new. Models[edit] Dorsey (2000) identified information retrieval, assessment and evaluation, organization, analysis, presentation, security, and collaboration as essential to PKM (cited in (Zhang 2009)). Criticism[edit]

Where we stand today "80 percent of what a company 'knows' resides in its employees' minds, while only 20 percent reside in repositories such as file shares, documents and wikis." That's according to a 2007 article by Boeing, in which the company profiled its knowledge management initiatives. It's a pretty compelling statement, no matter who you are. This article was written three years ago, yet many of its concepts around knowledge management continue to ring true. You might think, if we're still addressing the same issues, does this mean we haven't progressed? Absolutely not.

Mosco and McKercher (2007) outline various viewpoints on the matter. They first point to the most narrow and defined definition of knowledge work, such as Florida’s view of it as specifically, "the direct manipulation of symbols to create an original knowledge product, or to add obvious value to an existing one", which limits the definition of knowledge work to mainly creative work. Knowledge workers spend 38% of their time searching for information.

In this case, Knowledge Management. And in this particular case the superb blog post put together by Nancy Dixon under the title "The Three Eras of Knowledge Management – Summary". Outstanding read, if you haven’t gotten through it just yet… Yes, indeed, in that lengthy, but really worth reading altogether, article Nancy takes us all through a fascinating journey in describing incredibly well the various different stages that good old Knowledge Management has gone through over the last 15+ years, distinguishing three main eras of KM that I bet most knowledge workers out there could very well identify still going on in their own organisations.

It makes thinking and writing automatic. Lifelong learning Lifelong learning is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated"[1] pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, rather than competitiveness and employability.[2] Evolved from the term “life-long learners” created by Leslie Watkins and used by Professor Clint Taylor (CSULA) and Superintendent for the Temple City Unified School District’s mission statement in 1993, the term recognizes that learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom but takes place throughout life and in a range of situations. During the last fifty years, constant scientific and technological innovation and change has had a profound effect on learning needs and styles. Learning economy[edit] Lifelong learning is being recognized by traditional colleges and universities as valid in addition to degree attainment.

What is Spotlight Search? How to Google Your iPad or iPhone Spotlight Search may be the most underused feature on the iPad. Instead of hunting through page after page of apps, you can use the iPad's search feature to find the app for you. And because the search results update with each letter, you may only have to tap a few letters to bring the app to the top of the screen. But Spotlight Search is about more than just launching apps.
