I came across a very interesting article this afternoon about was reflecting on the idea of "engagement". There is no doubt that our educational climate is geared towards students being engaged - but what about the place and need of solitude in the learning process?
It is an interesting article that raises some questions. Give it a read here on the website "The Music Parent's Guide". I find they have some interesting (although sometimes formulaic) thoughts to share now and then.
