    Orchestrating learning as a metaphor for developing and investigating learning environments has gained traction among CSCL scholars and practitioners. We propose a formalization of the metaphor attempting to assess its usefulness to reconstruct two CSCL scenarios and its power to influence future CSCL theory building, research, and practice. Also, we discuss what role digital technologies can play in orchestrating CSCL.
