Abstract: Collaboration in complex learning scenarios does not succeed automatically without structuring the learning process. The Metafora project (http://www.metfora- is designing a pedagogy and a platform of web-based software to support learning to learn together (L2L2) in the context of math and science. The platform serves both as a toolbox of various learning tools and as a communication architecture to support cross-tool interoperability. The central tool in the Metafora system is a web-based application offering a visual language for planning, enacting and reflecting on learning activities. In the demonstration we will present our pedagogical approach for supporting L2L2 activities and the platform developed on the basis of this understanding. In particular we will demonstrate how the platform can be integrated in successive activities.
