Imagination to Elaborate on Learnings

As we learn, we keep elaborating on what we just learned. One form of elaborating is relating new knowledge to existing one. It can be very simple like simply matching to existing concepts and building new knowledge from existing one. It can be more advanced like playing with the new ideas in our mind and foresee where it could be used or which new light it brings to past experience. Here already we use our imagination to play virtual stories and scenes.

Further on, we can start relating new learning with existing unrelated knowledge in our minds. We start to elaborate in a way proper to ourselves. Combining existing and new knowledge to find solutions to existing needs. One step further we start being creative and envision totally new combinations for new needs. Existing knowledge is now combined with what we just learned plus new knowledge we just created. This little game shows how much personal knowledge management is as much about imagination and creativity than just flat learning or sharing things almost as we read them.

This is what we will explore in this week #PKMChat, in our unique Twitter chat style of open ended questions and free flowing conversation. There are no right answers to our chats and everyone is welcome to add new point of view.

PKMChat being about Personal Knowledge Management encompass Knowledge lifecycle in general. Our first chat was about learning, acquiring Knowledge. Our second is about sharing it. Week after weeks we will switch from one end of the lifecycle to another while exploring all the channels that could be used: social, formal, writing, videos. Feel free to suggest topics by tweeting to @pkmchat.
