Welcome to The Learning Hack, a podcast about the people and technologies that are shaping the future of learning.

Jan 18, 2021

John talks to Harold Jarche, blogger, speaker and consultant in the closely adjacent but oddly separate worlds of learning and knowledge management.
People at work need more than skills training and compliance learning. They have to navigate the complex knowledge environment that technology has given us, using concepts and tools that are part of an emerging field described by figures such as George Siemens, Dave Snowden, and Harold himself. Harold talks about Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM), his own take on this, in a wide-ranging discussion that ranges over sensemaking, wayfinding, the influence of military training and the current state of social media.

29:47 - Has military background influenced his thinking?
36:34 - Is the current state of social media less useful for PKM?
