    For example, there are different designs for smartphone use, tablets, and laptops. In this week''s #adjunctchat, we will trade some best practices for using mobile technology (m-learning) both in traditional classes and online classes. I''ll try to put up some links of examples I''ve used in my classes. Mobile Technology is here to stay. It is a fact of academic life. Many of us may try to resist integrating mobile technology into our classrooms.

    Many posts ago , we shared the example of the Ritz Carlton demonstrating that 'A company that values customer service should be teeming with customer service stories'. Here's another living example: Sparkspace. They have created a dedicated blog to record remarkable customer service. This is how they started with the idea. We've challenged our company to create 100 customer service "sparks" over 100 days. The sparks can be simple gestures or grand WOW experiences.

    So I thought, "hey, I could use this to assess the health of communities of practice." But I will need to ask the typical Net Promoter Score questions from two perspectives: How likely is it that you would recommend the Acme Community of Practice to a colleague? How likely is it that your manager would recommend the Acme Community of Practice to their staff? It's a simple idea: if you have more promoters than detractors you can expect your business to thrive.

Also, for example, unusual mud (containing, say, remnants of food) could count as an artefact.

    The options ranged from ‘developing from good sources’, thru ‘we test knowledge’ and ‘they have to get it right’ to ‘sufficient spaced contextualized practice’, e.g. ’til they can’t get it wrong. Still it’s pleasing to see that almost 30% are doing sufficient practice, but that’s only a wee bit ahead of those who say they’re just testing knowledge! The fourth question digs into the issue of examples.

A pragmatic approach for some companies would be to support workers who are already practicing some aspect of PKM.

    Most management practices today still focus on 20th century models, such as Henry Fayol’s six functions of management [look familiar?]. The core of management practice today has not changed since the days of Fayol, who died ninety years ago. Managers must actively listen, continuously question the changing work context, help to see patterns and make sense of them, and then suggest new practices and build consensus with networked workers.

    PKM is a discipline that requires practice. By incorporating PKM into our new age behavior, we’ll be able to accomplish the goals we have to improve ourselves and our listening and spoken language practice. In complex environments of connected people and multiple relationships, there are no best practices. However, general frameworks like PKM can provide a common foundation upon which to build contextually appropriate emergent practices.

In changing complex environments, it’s not much use to rely on previous best practices. Social media can provide a space to develop new practices. How these tools get used is itself an emergent practice, but if workers are not allowed to practice, nothing will emerge.
