While we are no longer developing Digital Mysteries and Thinking Kit, we are leaving our website up for those of you interested in the ideas behind the Apps.



Thinking Kit is a quick, simple way to create iPad activities which are then downloaded from the cloud onto learners’ iPads. The activities help learners develop higher level thinking and collaboration skills while they build knowledge of any chosen topic.

Ready made activities developed by teachers.

Alongside engaging illustrative slips, Digital Mysteries come with more information, almost like a lesson plan. Each has a detailed description, suggested learning outcomes and usually one main open question (often additional questions too). Hints are often included for different stages too, e.g. which slips could begin a new, named group.

All of the Digital Mysteries apps (currently only available on iPads) are truly collaborative, provide a ‘record of learning’ in the form of automatic reports and include plenty of opportunities to improve skills of speaking, listening and critical thinking. In-session, students can make use of tools (e.g. sticky tapes and notes) to help externalise their thinking.
