  • Effective major decision-making
    active process of gathering information
    making meaning of that information relative to the self.
    move students from a place where they are externally defined to where they are internally defined
    Students may use a variety of strategies as they explore personal attributes, as well as major and career information.
    Gordon (1992) lists four elements to classify these strategies:
    Self-Knowledge
    Educational Knowledge
    Occupational Knowledge
    Decision-Making Knowledge
  • Values
    what is important to you, what you need to feel satisfied in life, what you need to be “okay in the world”
    Personal & Work
    Personality
    preferences, leanings, tendencies; inherent, convey how you deal with others and information
    Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (Personality assessment)
    Interests
    what you like to do, what intrigues you; where you place your attention
    Strong Interest Inventory (Interest assessment)

They fall short, however, when learning moves into informal, networked, technology-enabled arena. Some principles of connectivism: http://www.connectivism.ca/about.html
