Personal Knowledge Management and Personal Learning Network

Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. PKM is a framework that leads other employees while keeping in touch with them as well. Harold Jarche speaks on PKM in details. This is a video on PKM which I find it useful and easy to understand.


Personal Learning Network (PLN) is an online collection of people whom are socially connected to one another. Klingen (2009) mentioned that PLN is a social network sites like Facebook, Twitter, blogs and many more. My favorite social network site would be Facebook. I could connect and be in touch with my friends from all over the world, even my primary school mates whom I lost contact years ago. Through Facebook, mutual friends are link to one another and somehow I could locate my friends and stay connected with them.

  1. The Sydney Morning Herald on the 24/03/14 interviewed a principal of an elementary school, who has been both very keen and successful in incorporating ICT in the school’s everyday learning process. She believed that ICTs do not just engage students but that they enhance their learning in the best possible way. She discussed about the fact that she was able to accomplish so much the past few years in regards to ICT in her school because she worked on her Personal Knowledge Management and expanded at the same time her Personal Learning Network. It is very inspiring for new teachers to see that there are people in the field that are passionate about ICT and that have actually succeeded in incorporating ICTs as a learning tool.
