In this paper we describe the evolving structure of the Inquiry Learning Forum (ILF), a socio-technical interaction network designed to support a web-based community of in-service and pre-service mathematics and science teachers sharing, improving, and creating inquiry based pedagogical practices. Specifically, we apply activity theory as an analytical lens for characterizing the process of designing and supporting the implementation of this online community.
