Using a constructivist perspective of socio-cultural orientation, this article presents a theoretical model that permits analyzing the transforming potential of virtual environments, based on their ability to mediate relations among teachers, students, and content. By addressing the basic principles of the theoretical model, a review is made of some of the central topics related to the analysis of joint activity in these environments. A multi-method approach is proposed for their study. Lastly, attention is centered on aspects related to the design and research of virtual environments conceived as places for the development of teaching and learning processes.
