Reinvention of Best Practices

  • New e-knowledge forms and capabilities achieve wide acceptance.
    • Digitized context joins content as key element in the value web of modular content
    • New generations of learning objects are managed within knowledge ecologies where ‘know-what’ and ‘know-how’ come into closer alignment
    • Content embedded in experiences and performances commands a value premium
    • Just-in-time and just-in-case knowledge management systems (ability to reflect new knowledge in learning experiences) are used to create new and re-purpose existing learning objects
    • Ability to track the knowledge to which people have been exposed and to which they have demonstrated competencies enables continuous recertification
    • Tradecraft-rich approach to learning objects is valued by most enterprises
  • Knowledge repositories, services, and marketplaces are established as foundations for e-knowledge.
    • Change the dynamics and power relationships of publishing
    • Open secondary markets for e-knowledge from particular providers
    • Empower non-traditional providers and supply aggregators
  • Communities of practice become the epicenters of knowledge stewardship and autonomic learning.
    • Achieve amenity in the experience of facilitating knowledge sharing among peers
    • Also provide regular syntheses of new knowledge to outside consumers
  • Impacts of new infrastructures and environments reshape knowledge ecologies.
    • New knowledge ecologies reshape relationships with learners, customers, members, and other stakeholders
    • Ambient intelligence environments provide new opportunities for individual and community-based knowledge sharing experiences
    • Relationships are the foundation for learning experiences and the fulcrum for leveraging them.
New e-knowledge forms and capabilities achieve wide acceptance. “Context” joins content as an important enabler of learning objects, generated through a value web of interconnecting knowledge sources. “Know-what” and “know-how” come into closer alignment as drivers of value from knowledge. The experiences and/or performances in which content/context are embedded are recognized as a source of premium value. Just-in-time and just-in-case knowledge management systems provide the capacity to continuously reflect emergent knowledge in existing and new learning objects.  

Pervasive, easy-to-use content management capabilities will enable enterprises and communities to track the knowledge which people have experienced and to create continuous re-certification capabilities. Most enterprises and individuals beyond basic educational levels will place a premium value on tradecraft-rich learning objects and experiences.

Any technology gradually creates a totally new human environment.

Marshall McLuhan, 1967
