It’s about Purposeful Discovery.

This is Day 4 of Shannon Tipton’s 30 day brainstorming challenge.

Michelle Ockers is also doing the 30 day brainstorming challenge and her day 3 video give me an “ah-ah” about the connection between #PKM & #WOL.

My “ah-ah” for the day: It’s about Purposeful Discovery.

Michelle made something click when she mentioned that the Purposeful Discovery piece of John’s WOL method helps to guide and focus her #PKM practices.

She says that having an overall goal can help “orient your WOL activities and stimulate your PKM activities.” according to Michelle.

I am feel like this is defiantly a piece to the puzzle I am trying to solve.  WOL is becoming more about building relationships where as PKM is becoming more about how to manage the information coming at you and using that information in a meaningful way.

  1. Your last sentence may have nailed it Kate. The extension of it is then that you can use the information that you’ve made sense of to help build / deepen relationships. It’s a virtuous cycle. We need someone who is really good at drawing pictures to help put this into a diagram when our thinking has evolved far enough.

    How exciting is it to see our conversation and thinking unfold like this over a number of days!


    1. It has been fun seeing this evolve. Going to spend some time re-reading comments and posts this weekend to see if I can summarize. Yes – someone who is good at the drawing thing would be good to add in the mix ; )
