Congrats Araceli and thanks for sharing/asking. The first thought that comes to mind is “STEMmerday”, which is like an application of KM to the education system.

 

Here’s the blog that got it started:

Learning System Idea: Death of Education, Dawn of Learning (learningidea.blogspot.com)

 

And one of the schools that’s been practicing it for 10 years since:

Overview / STEMmerday! (lcps.org)

 

Hope that’s supportive, albeit possibly slightly indirect,

John

Hello, 

I'm developing some strategic goals for my position as Knowledge Manager in a K-12 school district and was curious to see if any Knowledge Managers in this group were doing similar work. I'm the first person in this role and the first person doing this type of work for the organization. There is a lot of work to do and I'd just like to compare with others. 

If you or someone you know has worked in knowledge management within K-12 education and would be open to talking, please let me know. 

Thank you!

While not bad I wouldn't label this course as "Knowledge Management". In fact it is called "Data and Information" and "[t]he studies in the program open the door to the desired profession "information analyst",... ". In general such a course could be associated with teaching "information literacy".  Btw. there is a better overview of the program from this link incl. the curriculum in a word document.
 
On the KMedu Hub you find a few resources related to the subject of teaching Knowledge Management in primary, secondary, and vocational schools
 
 
Like Brett I too think it is not useful to teach Knowledge Management.  It is not useful to teach extra courses but courses which support the student's learning. E.g. a course like "Learning to learn".
 
 
@Ginetta
You know about "JEKPOT – The Knowledge Management Company" in Pavia (near Milan), Italy? Since 2000 it is running a conference including case studies from Italian companies.

Yes True Tom,

 

Chatham House Rules is a good system and totally dependent on Trust.

Highlighting this “condition” (expectation) helps people to affirm they agree to honour that trust through their participation and subsequent actions. This is a good example of the intangibles involved in our conversations and knowing what can be shared and what can’t be, based on the other “rules” placed upon us (by our other stakeholders – such as our employers and partners).

 

That said, there is so much more that can be said when you know and trust that Chatham House Rules is applied (and more importantly, you trust they will be adhered to).

Well-said, Arthur.  It’s likely that few here would question the benefits of information sharing. 

 

At the risk of stating the obvious, any such sharing should occur only consciously and carefully — particularly (as here) when multiple organizations are involved.  Even for an informal session like this, you might consider delineating “rules of engagement” agreed to (at least informally) in advance by the participants and governing any subsequent distribution and/or use of the findings. When we convene these kinds of discussion groups at The Conference Board, for example, we use the Chatham House rule:   https://www.chathamhouse.org/about-us/chatham-house-rule

 

Perhaps you do something like this already, in which case: never mind!  😉

Tom,

 

This is a great initiative and I wish I could have joined you (apologies for not being part of it).

I am sure that you will create value for David and all involved in the session.

 

The experience of sharing knowledge to help others (through activities like Peer Assist) is a great demonstration of what can be achieved when people openly share knowledge. It not only brings tangible actions for the beneficiary, it bring a range of intangible benefits like connection, relationship, trust and a sense of contribution.

 

These cannot be bought, only given and received by people in mutually beneficial trusted relationships.

Enjoy!

Re: Teaching knowledge management as a discipline in schools #schools

Moria,

How wonderful to hear that this is so and that such far sightedness exists ... I wonder if there is any public information about this sort of initiative?

The only bit of attempted dot joining I can  offer - and it may not be relevant - is to reference a significant body of inter-disciplinary knowledge now clustered at the Education Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in the US that has its foci on the principles of multi-literacies and entailed learning by design through core knowledge processes

This is not quite the same as your seemingly explicit linkages between data, information and knowledge studies, as an expertise - embedded in a curriculum. 

In contrast, it is a perspective of knowledge processing and meaning making that encompasses the enormous diversity of learning contexts relevant to education today (primary, secondary, tertiary). This same way of thinking has been used to inform the development of learning by design publishing platform (CG Scholar), which includes the innovative conceptions of big data in education and reflective learning. 

Not sure how relevant this might be, but it is sure inspiring it is scale of imagination with a robust sense of knowledge theory and processing - including commitments to a communitarian sense of education - at its core. 

All best with it. 



Richard

Re: Teaching knowledge management as a discipline in schools #schools

Moria,

 

I am no aware of KM being taught in any Australian schools, but I am not that close to the national curriculum.

However, I am pleased to say that there is more interdependent social learning starting to creep into the curriculum (slowly). It is not as significant as what Finland are doing, but at least progressing in the right direction.

 

Whilst this is not “teaching KM and knowledge related fields” as such. It is becoming more about experiential learning and social cocreation of knowledge as an experience. This is what we can all benefit from doing ore of , including in the KM profession.

I have shared some thoughts on this in my recent article on Reverse Bloom Learning Framework. Although designed for postgraduate learning mainly - it can be applied to earlier learning I believe with some adaptation (mainly around prior knowledge requirements).

Re: Teaching knowledge management as a discipline in schools #schools

Hello one and all,

Attached are two documents:

(1) A Syllabus for our Certified Knowledge Specialist Course I 
(2) And an article I wrote called "Knowledge Science: The Great Big Beautiful Puzzle.”

They are self-explanatory, however, I will say this.  My 13 year old nephew is patiently waiting (as am I) for our IQxCloud v3.0 rational reasoning KMS to be released (soon).  He already knows about sex (previous mention), so he is ready to move on.  It works the way people naturally think, so he will learn to model most any knowledge domain quickly - he already gets the idea, he just needs the tool to make it happen. His first project will be to model the organizational structure, sub-substructures, and relevant content of the State University (Public Information) that he wants to attend.  My plan is for him to then call the President of the University to make a presentation and earn a scholarship.  There may be a car involved in this as an incentive - not sure yet.  

The entire course, and two more, are organized in an ISO 9001 QMS format.  The plan is to roll the 3-series plan out.  

Let me know what you think?

Re: Teaching knowledge management as a discipline in schools #schools

I’m sure that all of us here are troubled by the fact that our world is awash in tidal waves of misinformation, disinformation, malinformation, propaganda, “sponsored content,” and the like — often with catastrophic results.  Many of the solutions currently being proposed for this global “infodemic” are supply-side focused — like regulating and/or moderating social media. But I feel that in addition, and perhaps ultimately to greater effect, we need to focus on the demand side — the consumers/users of information.

 

Basic training in digital media and information literacy is urgently needed at all age/expertise levels.  With ongoing updates, as the situation morphs.  I work with senior organizational leaders and university graduate students on this — but it needs to begin much earlier than that.  I’d propose that even age 15 is too late, and that it should begin around the same time as “adult topics” like sex education — 12 or so (which is typically the seventh grade here in the US.)

 

There is some of this already happening here and in Europe, but I don’t have details.  And as I understand it, it’s neither systemic nor sustained.  Any insights those of you here can offer will be most appreciated.

Hello Moria!
I do not think this is happening in Italy. You can find specific KM semesters in some university, for example at Roma 3 University there is a semester on KM, but it is part of the full study cycle in Business Administration. It is an optional semester not a mandatory one, by the way.
 
For your information, in Italy KM is not well known and finding a pure KM job is almost utopia.
 
All the best,
Ginetta

I think it is a mistake to teach "knowledge management".  Sure, introduce the ideas, discuss the various definitions and the ways it is employed.

I think it is more important to teach skills, like mapping processes, understanding collaboration, how groups decide.

These skills will frame the conditions for discovery of KM as a discipline.

In the spirit of Stephen's suggestion, and to analyse your key point ...

We were wondering if you were aware of any research or data that allows us to understand how operational decisions are made and the types of response activities that are undertaken during an incident response by operational staff? 

 An interesting context is a challenge of introducing Integrated Primary Mental Health Care in Rural and Regional contexts. The history of this goes back to the introduction of Medicare rebates for psychological services in primary care via general practitioners/family physical referrals (introduced in Australia in 2007). When this policy change was enacted, there was not a commitment to the sort of system-based and operational reflexivity you are referring to Stuart. IN many ways, this lack of attention to system-based reflexivity is common across a lot of knowledge intensive industry networks and perhaps is an area that the domain of KM could have advocated for, supported and enabled over long periods of time. Arguing for both empirical and intuitive responses to system pertubations. 

Many psychologists have been arguing and promoting such system-based reflexivity - an example of a recently released publication is this https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-981-10-5012-1_9-1 (declaring my sister is the author of this article), published in this book Handbook of Rural, Remote, and very Remote Mental Health.

Noting that the language of practitioner decision-based reflexivity as we would use this in KM does not permeate other knowledge-intensive industry networks such as those that make up any integrated health care service systems. 

I am aware that the Vic Govt emergency service networks have done some very good work over a period of time in emergency management along the lines you are describing, but I cannot for the life of me remember the context in which I heard about this. But given your networks, I am sure you are right on to this. 

For the moment,

Hi Stu,

I don't have any specific research, but I think you might find some productive starting points in clinical practice. For example the document below has an extensive section on the process of evaluation and revision of clinical practice guidelines:

https://www.health.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0029/143696/nhmrc_clinprgde.pdf

Specifically I thought this might be helpful as an overarching approach for your work:

Among possible methods for evaluation of guidelines are the following:

• comparing changes in clinical practice or health outcomes, or both, in areas of exceptionally high guideline promotion with changes in areas of exceptionally low guideline promotion;

• comparing health outcomes in areas of exceptionally high guideline uptake with outcomes in areas of exceptionally low guideline uptake—focus group testing can be useful to elucidate factors that have influenced this uptake.

When evaluating the guidelines it is important to focus on the guidelines themselves, rather than on the clinicians or other service providers. If there is little change in practice, or little adherence to the guidelines, this may be a consequence of a wide range of factors, among them the guideline development, dissemination and implementation process.

This would map nicely to a SenseMaker approach if you were so inclined and wanted to drill down into specific clusters.

Cheers,
Stephen.

Hi all,

The CFA R&D team are currently developing the "Our Operations" section of the 10-year Research Implementation Plan. 

 

We were wondering if you were aware of any research or data that allows us to understand how operational decisions are made and the types of response activities that are undertaken during an incident response by operational staff? Links to the broader decision making field would be appreciated, but anything specific to emergency services is what we are after.

 

We were hoping to design some research which captures the current baseline of response decisions and actions, evaluates their outcomes, and provide recommendations for improvements. This includes the difference between actual decision making and the official planned and reasoned decisions that are often talked about in retrospect once the outcome is known. 

 

It would be wonderful if you could point us in the direction of any people, existing resources, or data that would help us to better understand this space.

Re: Teaching knowledge management as a discipline in schools #schools

Cindy Young
 

Hello, Moria,

I don't know of any high schools that do this, but that's not to say it's not happening. It's something that I am looking at incorporating since my interest in teaching KM is getting to the people when they are starting their careers. I have already started looking at high school programs/electives and am reaching out to local colleges in their business programs to provide them with an elective in KM. I would be interested in hearing how your students like KM in high school and if they are more open to it in high school as opposed to those who "have to do it" in their daily professional lives.

Regards,

Cindy

Hello all
In Israel we have a special program in highschools teaching data, information and knowledge studies, as an expertise (learning 3 years from ages 15-180.
I am curious to know if any other country/state has similar programs.
Thank you,

Re: Knowledge & Evidence in Decision making - What does the literature say? #research

In the spirit of Stephen's suggestion, and to analyse your key point ...

We were wondering if you were aware of any research or data that allows us to understand how operational decisions are made and the types of response activities that are undertaken during an incident response by operational staff? 

 An interesting context is a challenge of introducing Integrated Primary Mental Health Care in Rural and Regional contexts. The history of this goes back to the introduction of Medicare rebates for psychological services in primary care via general practitioners/family physical referrals (introduced in Australia in 2007). When this policy change was enacted, there was not a commitment to the sort of system-based and operational reflexivity you are referring to Stuart. IN many ways, this lack of attention to system-based reflexivity is common across a lot of knowledge intensive industry networks and perhaps is an area that the domain of KM could have advocated for, supported and enabled over long periods of time. Arguing for both empirical and intuitive responses to system pertubations. 

Many psychologists have been arguing and promoting such system-based reflexivity - an example of a recently released publication is this https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-981-10-5012-1_9-1 (declaring my sister is the author of this article), published in this book Handbook of Rural, Remote, and very Remote Mental Health.
