Part of what you are talking about here is what Maria Montessori called "child-directed learning". There is a reason that Montessori kids excel - they take on their learning as their own. My daughter, who is now earning her Masters degree at Stanford, was a Motessori student through 6th grade. I credit her continued love of learning with those years. This is nothing new, but it is VERY effective.
