During the week one learning path we were introduced to Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) process. Jarche claims
“PKM is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively, and contribute to society”.
This brought me to my big question . . . how is the PKM process going to guide my learning throughout this course? I find this inquiry- based approach incredibly interesting, structured and useful. It provides me with a process to successfully scaffold my learning, in order to complete the assessment components of this course. The PKM process consists of three stages, Seek, Sense and Share. How are each of these stages going to guide my learning?
The first stage of the process, Seek, encourages exploration of prevalent ideas, notions, perspectives, interests and implications of ICT within education.
The second stage, Sense, highlights the importance of personalising the newly discovered information by making sense of the information and reflecting upon it. This stage encourages reflection upon the implications these ideas, notions and perspectives may have in terms of my particular context. In this case my context will be within rural primary school classrooms.
The Final stage, Share, promotes the exchange of resources, ideas and experiences through networking and collaborating with colleagues.
PKM provides a structured process for the exploration of the prevalent ideas, notions, perspectives, interests and implications of ICT within our classrooms.
