Abstract: This project looks into the design of a science learning environment that focuses on supporting interactions for meaning making among students mediated by computer supported learning environment. The problem it addresses stems from the lack of interaction in traditional science classrooms and students not acquiring the skills and practices of the science community. From the socio-cultural perspectives, interaction plays an important role in students’ in meaning making. However, students may find the process of inquiry learning an uphill task and requires scaffolding. Using the conceptualization of meaning making presented in this paper, a framework for analyzing the interaction in meaning making is proposed. This paper presents my initial ideas in the conceptualization of the project and the analysis framework.
