Research at CRADLE is truly an interdisciplinary effort. CRADLE researchers have backgrounds ranging from the Learning Sciences, Computer Sciences, Neurosciences, and Engineering. We are able to work with instructors and professors from each of the university's schools to help them research and develop new tools, new activities, and new modes of learning. We iteratively build systems, we diligently test for learning, and we enthusiastically teach faculty how to do the same. 

CRAD​LE's research falls under six broad strands:

Each of these strands intertwines with the others in interesting ways that open up the range of learning environments, activities, and systems that can be studied, tested, and shared. ​​​​​​​​​​
