Student-centered learning activities, unlike traditional "lesson plans," are structured more than they are scripted. How do we go about structuring a flexible, but focused, learning activity? What's needed are new, flexible frameworks that we can use to structure understanding-focused learning activities that help students make powerful,worthwhile use of online tools and resources. I have proposed these as telecollaborative activity structures, teleresearch activity purposes, and sequences of student actions (Harris, 1998 & 2001). How can these combine to help us to design students' learning spaces?
