This case study examines a small co-design team within a larger multi-year designbased implementation research (DBIR) project.

Teachers and researchers split into four teams, one of which was tasked with designing a project that examined relationships between humans and technology. Throughout this team's design

This study uses Wertsch's (1991) notion of mediated action to examine the ways that designed curricular objects mediate co-designers' multiple roles (Penuel et al., 2015) and connected goals.
