KMLF June meeting - Addressing a personal knowledge management dilemma

  • June 27, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

How do we capture our own knowledge for practical use, when our ideas and musings are often vague and emergent?

What can we do to cultivate these safely and confidently outside our own heads through the phases of hibernation, germination and then vigorous growth?

For our June meeting, Helen Palmer will take us on an archaeological tour through her digital notebooks where she stashes those emergent nuggets for safekeeping. See what she scavenges and curates to support her knowledge work.

Then we'll switch into an interactive and open forum where you'll have the opportunity to 'show and tell' your own personal knowledge management stories, and see what we can learn from each other.

So make sure you bring along your stories and examples to share with us!

What we'll cover - key takeways

  • Be inspired with practical ideas about how you might tackle you own personal KM issue
  • See and hear a real applied story with an opportunity to explore your own dilemmas
  • Leverage from what others have already learnt and discovered for their practice and tools

    Thank you for your fantastic introduction to OneNote, it is now back on my iPad. The current iPad version is still missing a lot of the core features included on the PC version, but I believe you have shown us the vision Microsoft has for future releases of the app. I look forward to being able to save webpages for offline reference and start building a list of quotes that are linked to my e-books. Also, thx to Jon and Stuart for your advice during the session. Andy

    Hey Stuart, Keeping in mind a true transfer from Evernote to OneNote is never going to be perfect. I just left my evernote stuff to one side initially. Your best bet to get OneNote on the iPad is to use the app "MobileNoter". It does a much better job, keeps all the formatting and works in the cloud too.

    Fantastic session Helen, Thankyou. I gave the conversion of Evernote to OneNote a go and unfortunately it was terrible. Stripped out a lot of the native Evernote functionality, especially all the Task Boxes, which is a pity because they pretty much do tasks the same way. Also could not get OneNote to connect on the iPad at all :( On a positive note, I came across an iPad Free app called "53" last night. Beautiful for sketching and getting down visual ideas. $2 for each pen or brush you add.

    As the presenter, I was delighted to share knowledge about a knowledge-related passion of mine. From comments at the session, it seems others were inspired and informed. One person wrote me later and said they went home and started implementing their reinvigorated notebooking practice that night. Such a response is for me a personal measure of success of knowledge sharing.

    It was interesting to get a better picture of how technology can aid and support individual knowledge management.

    This meeting ticked all the boxes on Note booking from paper to digital in a seem less and effective manner. It had me thinking about the potential of my personal knowledge capture and how to have your knowledge cake , store it & eat it, over & over.

    A very good session! Learn about personal knowledge is coming from snapshots of one's life, deep observations and non-linear thinking.
    OneNote is an interesting software and I surely will look into it.

    Lots of great food for thought. Thanks to Helen for showcasing OneNote which has many practical uses.

    Really interesting demo of how OneNote can be used and while I wouldn't make the use of it that Helen does (not being a journaller) it was still really useful for me to see the huge variety of tasks it can do, some of which I will use.
