Abstract: In this paper I want to argue that there are compelling reasons for school science pupils to engage in discussing their practical work online. These reasons stem from two sources: first, a general agreement among science educators that the discussion of practical work may, if suitably managed, lead to increased understanding among pupils of the nature of science; and second, the observation that the rapidly increasing use of networked computers (in learning settings outside formal schooling and by school pupils in their personal lives, also outside formal schooling) provides a natural way of doing this. When referring to the use of networked computers as a tool for online collaborative learning, the term CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) is used throughout this paper.
