Abstract [en]

This paper reports on the first year of a two-year study in Finland about Finnish teachers didactical design in one-to-one (1:1) tablet classrooms. In it's simplest form 1:1 means that each student and teacher is equipped with a computing device. In this study all students and teachers are equipped with an Apple iPad. Compared to other European countries (EUN, 2013) the digitalisation of Finnish schools progress at a slow rate where the ratio of computers per child in year 7-9 is among the lowest, but has started to increase. The project is conducted during the transition from the 2004 national curriculum to the 2016 national curriculum. Researchers indicate that equipping each student with a digital device is a great challenge for the so-called ecology of the classroom (Håkansson Lindqvist, 2015). Aspect of digitalisation concerns wireless Internet access (WiFi) and cloud computing. Such technologies highlight the notion of what content students have access to and how content is shared among teachers and students. Traditionally, teaching have been organised with textbooks while with 1:1 computing students got access to a great number of new resources that possibly challenges the thinking of what represents content. However, it is not the content per se that create students learning experience, it is how the teacher design students' learning expedition (Jahnke, Norqvist and Olsson, 2014) with the curriculum and the content.

Aim and research questions: The aim of this paper is to contribute to knowledge about teachers' didactical design in schools with one-to-one tablet programs.

- What characterises the students' interaction with the content in one-to-one tablet contexts?

- How can we understand the teachers' didactical design based on the relationship between the privileging features of the one-to-one tablet context in relation to the teaching practice?
