As web-enabled mobile technologies become increasingly integrated into formal learning environments, a new kind of classroom emerge: CrossActionSpaces. These spaces can be characterized as informal-in-formal spaces in which learning takes place across traditional in person or online boundaries. Under these new circumstances, the questions are: how to design for learning with technologies (and not learning from technologies)? In this keynote, Isa Jahnke presents the approach of Digital Didactical Designs (DDD) that aims to develop deep and meaningful teaching and learning designs-in-practices with technologies. DDD can be applied to design, develop and evaluate educational online and blended learning practices. Examples of online and blended learning classes will be illustrated.
