The MIRACLE project consists of people with different disciplinary backgrounds including learning science theory, science education, ICT design research and artwork, as well as architecture and technology. This cross-disciplinarity is vital to carrying out a research based design in developing the MIRACLE learning platform, as well as interpreting how this platform is used in real educational settings.
