This is more of a general comment, not directly related to the post. I tried out this philosophy of education this semester in teaching college courses. I have to say the results were pretty mediocre. Even giving student choice for assignments, self-selection of groups, etc., it never really clicked.
From a couple of my evaluations, I received statements like "students don't really want to educate themselves", or "students don't want to learn on their own".
I think this philosophy of education may be superior if it is implemented at a school-wide level. But fitting it into a system that has a curriculum, required classes, specific learning objectives, etc., didn't work too well for me.
