Abstract: 
Current technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) studies are
inclined to treat technology in a general manner, which may not be able to provide
adequate guidelines to improve teacher preparation and professional development when
teaching with games. This study developed two questionnaires, named technological
pedagogical content knowledge –Game (TPACK-G) and acceptance of digital game-based
learning (ADGBL), to investigate 352 preschool teachers’ TPACK-G as well as to assess
their attitudes toward game-based learning. The results show that both instruments were
has satisfactory validity and reliability. Positive correlations were found between the
factors between the TPACK-G and ADGBL. The framework of TPACK-G proposed by
this study was supported, suggesting that an upper element is more general and
fundamental and the more specific knowledge factors (GPK, GPCK) build on the GK.
