Abstract: As Science and Mathematics teaching and learning in Europe decays, the Metafora project offers a proposal for the promotion of a new pedagogy based on online social learning through the use of the platform’s tools. Our Pilot study aimed at exploring how students can enhance their science learning by engaging in meaning generation processes using the Metafora tools. These processes include making sense of motion in Newtonian space using one of the tools, the 3D Juggler Microworld. The students also engaged in group discussion and argumentation using Lasad and collaborative planning of actions using the Planning tool of the Metafora platform. The role of the tools is promising in enhancing students’ scientific meaning making. Yet, further research is needed in exploitting the tools’ potential to contribute in collaborative, social learning and enhance the learning climate with an emphasis on togetherness which seems to be missing from our schools.
