What is Personal Knowledge
Management?


It is a system or strategy designed by
individuals to


Organize and integrate personally important
information


transform random pieces of information into
something that can be systematically applied
and that expands our personal knowledge


Similar to information literacy

Basis of Information Literacy


a set of abilities


"[I]nformation literate people are those who
have learned how to learn


…”they know how knowledge is organized,
how to find information, and how to use
information in such a way that others can
learn from them. They are people prepared
for lifelong learning."

Information Literacy: Final Report. (Chicago: ALA), 1989.

Comments


Many of the information literacy resources
stop at presenting methods for assuring
that you can keep information and ideas


But, PKM gives you tools and hints for
finding, evaluating, organizing, analyzing,
presenting, collaborating and securing
information and ideas
