Thinking through the links between knowledge management and learning via this post from Jack Vinson, reinforces to me the importance of situated learning, ie, that powerful learning occurs when it takes places directly in the situation the learning will/ should be applied. Thus the continued focus on work-based learning, learning by doing, informal learning, sitting next to Nellie, etc. And what applies to learning can and should apply to knowledge management as KM is more about context, understanding and application than tools and technology
