While teacher education candidates and faculty have improved their knowledge and skills with technology, challenges remain regarding their understanding of how to integrate technology effectively within their pedagogical practices. One solution is to provide models of purposeful technology integration within instruction that embeds digital pedagogy throughout the learning process. This paper describes how a teacher education program is addressing the need to engage candidates and faculty around issues of technology integration and adoption. This is done through participation in a Breakout EDU game focused on introducing candidates, and faculty to what might be possible when integrating technology within their instructional practices. Throughout the paper, we describe how restructured instructional spaces and the Breakout EDU game model technology integration and has initiated change within the teacher preparation program.
