Among the alternative "spaces" for the professional learning of teachers, collaborative reflection on students' work is gaining attention as an effective method to anchor improvement of classroom practices and students outcomes. Creative use of technology often leads to the development of multimedia artifacts that can enable one to reconstruct mastery of content and technology standards as well as the pedagogy of technology integration in the classroom. Therefore, student work reflection appears particularly suited as a professional development strategy in the area of technology integration. This poster/demonstration attempts to illustrate through cases the extent to which an online system, blending aspects of computer-supported collaborative work (CSCW) and e-Learning systems, can support and enhance the interactive collaborative process of reflection on students' work and contribute to the professional learning of teachers in the area of technology integration.
