    Feedback from the high school teacher who tried KSP

    I'm working with middle school students and have had success using Kerbal as a 'break' from regular assignments. (One of my learning objectives for students is how to budget their time.) This takes a bit of the focus off Kerbal, and students develop skills and expertise at their own rate. This also reduces 'off task' behavior since students feel like they are getting relief from other assignments. After a few weeks there is a cadre of Kerbal experts who can help their peers. My goal now is to turn Kerbal Challenges into a class assignment and teach content and collaboration explicitly. With a new 'break' option to replace Kerbal. I'll keep you posted.
