One-to-one (1:1) computing has recently been scaled up andintegrated into learning strategies, but there have been rather few studiesabout it so far. This explorative observation and interview studyaims to gain increased understanding about the student role in the 1:1computing classroom in upper secondary school. The results demonstratea media-rich classroom based on four categories of affordances:students’ note-taking; searching the Internet; social media; and laptopsfor duplication. The four categories of affordances delineate how teachers’behaviour is influencing students and their use of laptops in thedesigned learning activities. The designs of the 1:1 classrooms are basedon technology-enhanced consumption of media as opposed to designs fortechnology-enhanced learning. It is concluded that the student role is diverseand stretched between principles of both teacher-centred learningand student-centred learning.
