This paper intends to present the Education through Research as a new approach for the development and use of educational software. The Education through Research aims to improve the practice in classroom, motivating students to do research as an everyday activity. This implies some changes in the roles of teachers and students because both have to contribute for knowledge reconstruction, considered the differential criteria in this approach. In this paper, we are going to present a way to incorporate these ideas into a system called SAEP-NET (System to Support Education Through Research over the Internet).
