The aim of this study is to find design for integration between inside and outside of the classroom. Learning activities at school is conducted inside a classroom mainly, but activities outside a classroom also important. However, frequently it's not working well. The learners are not able to find relations between both activities. This misunderstanding is caused by situation differences. To find a design for connection between inside and outside classroom, we conducted case study emphasized the interaction of learning situations. The tablet device (iPad) was used to be possible interaction among the students. As a result the students formed learning community that sharing learning goals by interaction among them, and were engaged in it. The interaction among learners in online by tablet device is one of useful design for integration of situations. On the other hand, some of students don't work well, because tablet devices is not familiar with learning situation.
