WHAT IS DIGITAL MYSTERIES?

Digital Mysteries – learning through collaboration

Based on an established paper-based learning tool, it is popular with teachers who value problem-solving and collaboration due to its open-ended nature and focus on group work.

From a library of mysteries on various subjects, students are given 20-30 slips of information. They usually have a strong narrative thread about people experiencing events. The process typically involves reading the information slips and grouping them. Students can then create a sequence which represents their answer.


The students' thinking is more visible on the digital version (right).
