Abstract: This paper is an exploratory study to investigate the preservice teachers’ awareness of digital game-supported learning. The survey questionnaire consists of four dimensions: digital gaming experience, attitudes toward digital gaming, digital gaming self-efficacy, and awareness of digital game-supported learning. 125 preservice teachers completed the questionnaire. The results showed that most preservice teachers play digital games, and they believe digital games have potential to be a useful tool for students. After this exploratory survey, we are planning a training program to develop preservice teachers’ competency of designing game-supported learning activity into course units.
