The Bioregional Mentor and other ARK roles
The ARK is designed to become a social network that drives offline connections.
The central roles of the platforms are:
- Learner: whoever registers a profile, is part of a Community, joins an activity and collects impact points
- Facilitator: who register a profile, is part of a Community, runs an activity and afterwards assigns impact points to learners
- Community Mentor: usually is the the member of his team (organisation, school, or whatsoever) that is enabled to create a new Community on the ARK and keeps the communication going with the ARK team.
The Bioregional Mentor is a further role established to spread and further decentralise the ARK. Bioregional Mentors are advanced users that help to board new communities in a specific territory and/or bioregion. They undergo a short training and form part of the biological relationships which interlace in the ARK design with online connections.
