Sample text

It is an ecologically-valid educational strategy used by mammals and several other animals [17]. In a classic study from 1898 [23], Triplett found that cyclists were faster when competing against others than when racing alone. This effect is called social facilitation and has subsequently been found in other tasks and other animals [26, 27]. Brains have evolved for action [11], but actions with others are more engaging. The hunter-gatherer brain is particularly well-adapted to collaborating and learning from others in order to compete with neighboring groups.

From the teacher’s point of view, team games provide a unique environment for teaching. The teacher can easily form emotional connections with the students, empathize with them and be their leader. Our brains have also evolved to follow a leader in our conflict against other tribes. This opportunity is optimized when teams comprise the whole class. In this case, the students can truly trust their teacher as there is no conflict of a teacher helping rival teams. Instead, they only provide academic and emotional support to their own class.
