IEEE InterLACE Paper – January 2012 v05

Between 2010 and 2014, the educational research and development team at Tufts CEEO isĀ  designed, developed and tested an innovative web-based learning environment called InterLACE (Interactive Learning and Collaboration Environment) to support high school students in carrying out collaborative inquiry-based physics lessons. The InterLACE toolkit provides both features and teacher-customizable content that encourage discussion, debate, self-assessment, reflection, and collective sense-making. Our goal is to minimize barriers to the successful implementation of collaborative inquiry-based lessons (e.g., time, technology, and inexperience with technology and inquiry based instruction).

Starting in the fall of 2015, InterLACE has become a commercial product, Visual Classrooms.
