CoReflect (Title: Digital support for Inquiry, Collaboration, and Reflection on Socio-Scientific Debates) was a three year (2008 – 2011) research program, funded by the European Commission, under the FP7 Science in Society program. Bringing together eight diverse and multi-disciplinary teams from seven European states, the project members promoted evidence-based practice in science teaching and learning, by collaborating to iteratively design, enact, critique, and validate problem-based innovative inquiry learning environments. These environments, which are being hosted on the STOCHASMOS web-based teaching and learning platform, coupled data-rich scientific rigor with the flexibility and easy modifiability that is needed for widespread adoption and use by teachers.
