PyramidApp is a scalable technological approach facilitating flexible collaborative learning following Pyramid or Snowballcollaborative learning flow pattern.
Using PyramidApp authoring tool, practitioners can design activities that can be enacted in any preferred education context. Students will use PyramidApp to access the activity and submit individual option (which can be a question, comment, suggestion, or even a link of a created resource) for a given task. Students will be able to collaboratively discuss and negotiate upon a common agreed option in groups and rate those options iteratively following a snowball or pyramid structure till the complete crowd reaches a global consensus on the most interesting option(s).
The objective of the tool is to allow students to learn from peers in the process of proposing options, discussing and selecting the best option(s)! Practitioners are able to monitor on-going pyramid activities and view the winning options in order to discuss further.
