Personal Knowledge Management – How do I do it?


I have tried to map out my PKM routine in the table below. In general, the tools listed are those which I have already used in my studies, with the addition of tools such as Diigo, Mendeley and Feedly which I have only just started using thanks to this course.  The ‘Share’ component of the table is an area which I have little experience with. The tools listed here are more so the ones which I would ‘like’ to use, rather than what I am currently using.  I feel that I do not yet have all the knowledge and skills to use some of the listed tools such as diigo, mendeley, twitter, for the purposes of sharing my learning with others. But I am confident that as undertake further research, view how other members of this course are using these applications, and start having a go myself, I will be able to comfortably and effectively use NGL tools.

I also hope to add more actions, strategies and tools as I broaden my understanding of NGL over the coming months.
