Here are my rough notes and links to resources that Helen mentions:
- modelling based on most interesting project you have learned from - apply those ways of learning to your work
- think about filtering content you find using hashtags - in other words the early beginnings of establishing your own trusted sources
- the things we learned at school and university are often not used at all, and when they are the knowledge becomes obsolete more and more quickly - see Buckminster Fuller Knowledge Doubling (as augmented by IBM), see Half Life of Facts
- learning through connections and networks - see Microsoft “Where Work Gets Done), see Harold Jarche PKM
- Create personal learning plan (Helen’s approach, this bit mostly in her words)
- what’s the problem
- what do you need to achieve? (visualise this - make a rich picture)
- who can help? build a personal learning network, identify trusted sources (cf Jarche seek-sense-share), use tools to help, online communities, twitter lists, look at who in your workplace
- what tools and resources do you have access to?
- online courses and sources
- curation tools
- is it safe to learn? (at work) - culture, support, how can you incorporate your learning into a work project?
- what can I test on?
- how do you know you are on track? (feedback)
- how do I create meaning and relevancy? ( Sensemaking, reflection, examples of vlogging, blogging, wakelet)
- where can I apply the learning?
- who else needs to know? / how can I help others? (Share)
- how do I record what I learned? (build a portfolio - and make this independent of your employer)
- make a plan - use template?
To which I will add this as one of the best short articles on knowledge decay:
