Current studies on media tablets illustrated that mobile technology may improve learning when truly integrated into learning settings. The question remains what truly integrated means, how it might be operationalized. In a study of Scandinavian classrooms, the question was how teachers adopt and integrate media tablets in their teaching practices in order to provide learning opportunities for their students. Seven K-9 schools implemented media tablets for around 2,000 students aged 6-16 and ca. 170 teachers in a 1:1 programme launched in 2012 (one tablet per student). Mixed methods, interviews, classroom observations and online surveys have been applied. The findings illustrate new forms of teaching practices. Studying technology integration from the angle of a socio-technical-pedagogical practice, it reveals the interrelationship of teaching processes and quality of learning. This study shows five forms of Digital Didactical Design in practice, which affect tablet-mediated learning expeditions – most of the designs boost learning, others restrict learning.
