This paper described a case study of informed educational technology design. The paper discussed how a conceptual guide for technology teacher experiences (Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Glazewski, & Newby, 2010) informed educational technology design in a course intended to prepare future teacher students to use technology. These students are introduced to various technologies and create materials for their future classrooms. They are also exposed to cases wherein they are required to make decisions on which technologies are most pedagogically appropriate. Therefore, the technology and pedagogy selected for this course are particularly important, as course instructors need to model appropriate decision-making.
