Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape.
Petrides, Lisa A.; Nodine, Thad R.
This monograph presents a set of emerging theories, along with current practices and recommendations, that focus on the effective management of knowledge in educational settings. It provides a set of simple designs for linking people, processes, and technologies, and discusses how organizations can promote policies and practices that help people share and manage knowledge. The details in the monograph are drawn from discussions at the Knowledge Management in Education Summit held in December 2002. The aim of the monograph is to build from the insights of presenters and participants at the summit in an effort to share the most recent understandings about knowledge management in education. It describes knowledge management as a set of practices that helps to improve the use and sharing of data and information in decision-making. Following a discussion on improving accountability in education, the monograph addresses technology culture and information culture; provides practical approaches to knowledge management; discusses the practical aspects of knowledge management; and offers recommendations for those interested in promoting the use of knowledge management practices in education. (Contains a list of 34 references and further resources.) (WFA)
