everything you need in one box

Each experience is fully contained within its own set of iBeacons, which are portable, easy to set up, and can be used anywhere, time and time again. A wifi connection is required to download the required app, but once installed the game can be played offline.

Within the app and iBeacons you will find all the details of the crime – a video of the crime scene, a dossier on all characters, animated statements, and  interviews, together with a variety of supplementary evidence (or red herrings!) – visual clues, documents, objects and scenes to examine and explore.

All SleuthIT! experiences require the download of a freely available companion app, available for iOS and Android. Chromebook App Coming Soon.

Learning impacts

SleuthIT! is built upon sound pedagogy and puts learning first...

enjoyment of literacy

Sleuth IT was originally created to provide a truly unique and immersive experience that can inspire a  love of literacy, particularly in boys.


Gamification is well documented for its positive influence on encouraging and engaging students in the learning process, and the combination of all of these elements suggested the ‘whodunnit’ angle to the experience: everyone thinks or likes to think they can be as smart as Sherlock Holmes.

blended learning

Every Sleuth IT experience incorporates a range of high-quality media designed to stimulate and support learning, including video, imagery, 360-degree panoramic videos, and interactive widgets.
