Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape

Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape

In the new era of accountability in education, schools are not doing all that they can to use available information for planning, operations, and management to yield more effective outcomes for students. A new report, released by the California-based Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), urges school leaders to balance their investments in technology infrastructure with equally important efforts to integrate data and information into decision-making. The report, Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape, summarizes the research on knowledge management and identifies lessons learned from the field to help public school administrators respond to greater public demand for accountability and improve education institutions. It defines what effective knowledge management is, discusses differences between data-based and knowledge-based decision-making, and identifies the challenges facing many districts and schools.
