This research examined the change in the perceptions of preservice teachers regarding the use of digital mini-games to support middle school level social studies learning.
18 preservice teachers participated in the study.
The results of a Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test for matched pairs revealed that the participants' perceptions were positively modified by participation in a series of digital mini-games.
Results also indicated that the majority of preservice teachers agreed that digital games do have the potential for promoting learning in an educational setting.
Recommendations for further research are provided.
