Supporting disciplinary thinking and personal genealogy with the help of DNA tests: How teachers can acquire and use disciplinary knowledge in their teaching



In this study, we examine student teachers' perceptions regarding their own family trees, the origins of Finns, and the effects of personal DNA tests in their knowledge management. The aim of this research is to gain information through the results of personal DNA tests, in addition to multidisciplinary instruction in students’ ways of explaining their personal genealogy and Finnish lineage. Furthermore, we examine how students' readiness towards disciplinary-based integrative instruction will develop during this project.
