I am changing my website to reflect a new direction in my learning, sharing and professional development interests.
Over the past six months, I’ve being immersed in a long period of reflection about what I want to accomplish in business and as a learner. On another level I realize that I’ve being immersed in a process of re-discovering myself. Through this transition (aka dormant ) period, I haven’t published many posts or shared to any great extent what I’m interested in or how I am applying what I’m learning through my online networks..
Now I’m at a point where I feel ready to put into practice my new vision for my business and my personal and professional development. So, that said, I’m bursting with energy and drive to blog about my journey as a network learner and worker.
The main focus of my work interests this past year is learning about the Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) Framework or Seek – Sense – Share framework that Harold Jarche has so eloquently created. My new website will include the use of that framework as applied in my work and learning activities
I’m involved in several projects that are attempting to address wicked problems related to high levels of youth unemployment and the growing problems of youth mental illness. I have come to recognize how the PKM framework can be an empowering learning process for youth (or any individual) that could help them become stronger and healthier worker-learners.
What can be more empowering and positive than improving ones ability to find useful and needed information, connect with others, share your knowledge and insights and essentially take control of your own professional development and healthy workspace.
You can get an overview of Harold’s PKM or Seek – Sense – Share Framework in a recent article published in the Inside Learning Technologies magazine
A few books that are giving me inspiration, motivation and energy as I develop my website are:
The Icarus Deception – How High Will You Fly —– Seth Godin
Social – Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect —- Matthew D. Lieberman
Social Learning Handbook 2014 — Jane Hart
So stay tuned – I am working hard on completing my new site by the end of March.
