Traditionally, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) "has been segregated from the normal teaching classroom" P, e.g. in computer labs. This has been changed with the advent of smaller devices like iPads. There is a shift from separating ICT and education to co-located settings in which digital technology becomes part of the classroom. This paper presents the results from a study about exploring digital didactical designs using iPads applied by teachers in schools. Classroom observations and interviews in iPad-classrooms in Danish schools have been done with the aim to provide empirical evidence on the co-evolutionary design of both, didactical designs and iPads. The Danish community Odder has 7 schools where around 200 teachers and 2,000 students aged 6-16 use iPads in a 1: 1 iPad-program. Three key aspects could be explored: The teachers' digital didactical designs embrace a) new learning goals where more than one correct answer exists, b) focus on producing knowledge in informal-in-formal learning spaces, c) making learning visible in different products (text, comics, podcasts etc.). The results show the necessity of rethinking traditional Didaktik towards Digital Didactics.
