Game-based teaching of ToE – Effect of game-based teaching of the theory of evolution in initial teacher training
Game-based learning is a popular approach to offer the opportunity to support student engagement and motivation (Aprea & Ifenthaler, 2021). The Theory of Evolution (ToE) is complex and is a teaching challenge to understand biodiversity. It is therefore essential to strengthen joint knowledge in biology and mathematics with greater collaboration between statistical and biological educators to make real progress in teaching the ToE. Game-based pre-service teacher training will improve students’ understanding of the concept of threshold: “chance”.
