For those following along at home, I've done an updated concept map of the literature I'm reviewing for my thesis. The primary difference is that I've combined social and self-directed learning into one big section, and added a third section for decision-making.
Finding anything related to decision-making in educational research is proving difficult, probably because the there are so few real decisions for most students. I'm interested in how people decide what to learn when they are intrinsically motivated. How do we decide which learning goals to pursue out of the infinite pool of potential knowledge and skills?
I also changed the title of the diagram to reflect the fact that it's not really my thesis yet -- it's just what I'm digging into for the framework.
