Abstract: This paper investigates teachers’ task design in a 1:1-setting. The analysis draws on a longitudinal study in two secondary schools in Sweden. The TPACK-framework is used as a lens for understanding not only how information technologies play an additional part in the design of the tasks, but also for analysing how teachers address the integration of pedagogy and content in the use of technology. The teacher’s and the students’ continuous access to laptops enabled an arena for collective knowledge building. The results show how the original task was expanded in unanticipated ways. The paper also provides guidelines for task design in a 1:1 setting, usable for both pre- and in-service teacher education.
