Abstract: 
WiMVT (Web-based inquirer with Modeling and Visualization Technology) is designed as a learning system combining guided inquiry, modeling and visualization with the social interaction. In the paper, we first present the design rationale of the system, briefly describe the main functions, then discuss the features supporting model progression in science learning. Following it, we describe a pilot study of WiMVT implementation in the secondary science class. The data analysis demonstrates the pedagogical value of WiMVT on students' conceptual understanding, and indicates that appropriate peer feedback can promote students’ model elaboration in the modeling activities.
