Abstract

Personal knowledge management has been defined to be “A process and strategy for properly using the tools of technology for enhancing information, learning and inquiry skills” [1] and has been applied to student learning by using a model [2] based on that of Dorsey [3]. This paper extends that model to include interpersonal, small group knowledge management in an attempt to better reflect the way in which students are required to collaborate in their production of group projects. The model of small group knowledge management (SGKM) has then been implemented by using wikis and then utilized within an MBA unit in Information Systems Management. The students were required to work in groups to produce wiki portfolios of work and the groups also had to view and comment on other student groups' wiki portfolios. Data were collected from the students in an attempt to determine the usefulness of the model and technology utilized in the support of their learning, and the results from an initial analysis are reported.
