... years, Avida-ED has emerged as an innovative tool for teaching evolutionary principles. It allows students to directly observe effects of evolution by changing different variables, such as environmental conditions and genetic sequences. In our study, we used pretest and posttest questionnaires...

... to observe, and computer simulations do not always result in a clear understanding of evolutionary principles. Recently, the Avida-ED software has been developed to simulate evolution in a laboratory setting. Unlike other simulations, Avida-ED allows students to manipulate the environment, change...

... such as evolution. We describe Avida-ED, a research-based platform for digital evolution that overcomes many of the challenges associated with using biological model organisms in the classroom. We then report the findings of a nationwide, multiple-case study on classroom implementation of Avida-ED and its influence...
