Welcome to the MIROR Project

MIROR is an acronym for “Musical Interaction Relying On Reflexion”.

The project is co-funded by the European Community under the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), 7th Framework Programme, sub programme Technology-enhanced Learning. The MIROR Project deals with the development of an innovative adaptive system for children’s music and dance learning and teaching, based on the “reflexive interaction” paradigm: the MIROR Platform.

The project started on the 1st of September 2010 and ended on 31st of August 2013.

As from the Final Report of the European Commission:

“The project is a landmark in the development of technology enhanced music systems. It serves as a reference and source of inspiration for new initiatives in this research domain.”

“They show that an interdisciplinary approach and collaboration between hard and soft sciences is feasible and that the development of technology in a context of psychology-pedagogy can be mutually fruitful.”

“The technological results are interesting and the interdisciplinary approach also led to new and promising methodologies for the psychological-pedagogical sciences”.

“The consortium tested the psychological and pedagogical effectiveness of the Reflexive Interactive Paradigm (RIP) that was implemented in the MIROR technology using a mix of methods that combine both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Some publications of the final results are on their way of being published and they will certainly have impact in the field.”

“The consortium has set up a system that implements the spiral approach in development and testing. The resulting tools have been iteratively refined over the whole project and proven to be fully accessible and usable for the community.”

“The technology provided new stimulations for thinking out of the box about new pedagogy and child-machine interactions. The MIROR project, despite its possible shortcomings, can be seen as a landmark in the domain and it will inspire new developments in this fascinating field.”

“There is evidence that the project can achieve a significant scientific, technical, commercial, social impact.”
