Abstract: Digital literacy is an important aspect to consider within teacher education as a way to address 21st century learner needs. An analysis of an online graduate level technology course for early childhood educators revealed a quickly out of date framework had been utilized, and a course redesign to focus on pedagogical possibilities for digital literacy occurred. The original framework intended for the course redesign was the TPACK framework, but analysis of the course by K-12 instructional technology experts yielded a shift from TPACK to frameworks more in line with conversations happening on K-12 level.
