The purpose of this study was to explain the relationship between pre-service teachers’ perception of ICT strategies used in teacher education programs to prepare pre-service teachers for technology integration and the perception of DGBL. In addition, the perception of DGBL was examined with four dimensions: experience, attitude, self efficacy and perception. The participants were 306 3rd and 4th year pre-service teachers who were students in Ankara, Turkey. Data were collected with the Digital Game Supported Learning (DGSL) Scale and Synthesis of Qualitative Evidence (SQD) Scale. DGSL Scale was adapted to the Turkish language for the purpose of this study. After conducting exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, descriptive statistics were examined. Additionally, three separate linear regression analyses were carried out to test the predictive relationship between SQD and the three subscales of DGSL, namely perception, attitude, and self-efficacy. The findings of the analyses demonstrated that the participants’ perception of ICT strategies used in teacher training programs had a significant relationship with the attitude, self-efficacy, and perceptions of DGBL. In other words, the more the ICT strategies defined in the SQD model were included in teacher education programs, the more levels of preservice teachers’ perceptions of DGBL increased. Additionally, analysis of regression analyses revealed that the pre-service teachers’ perception of DGBL was the variable that was positively and the most significantly associated with the perception of ICT strategies.
