GEDIE System?
What is a Go-GEDIE System?

Grassroots Education?
What is a Grassroots Education?
  • Grassroots Learning is a creative lifestyle focused on social development & the constant sharing of skills & knowledge.
  • Member groups manage educational workshops called "Lesson Tracks". They earn Aptitude points from their published cultivation of community skills.
  • Social learning points are connected to a team-oriented incentive network that explores the full potential of community members.
  • • top •
Why would Grassroots Learning succeed?
  • Lesson Workshops develop local learning initiatives while organizing team efforts around the immediate needs of the community.
  • Teams must prove their progressive aptitude by keeping a portfolio record of project experiences and shared lessons.
  • This system is designed around efficiently conserving time, effort and financial resources for maximum effect with minimal waste.
  • • top •
How do you measure Educational Progress?
  • Aptitude Points and Mission Medals are some of the attributes earned for managing Lesson workshops.
  • These marks have 4 ranking levels of progressive skill: Student, Trainee, Expert and Professor.
  • • top •
What are Specialty Skill Aptitudes?
  • These "Spell" points range from 1 to 360 and track the progressive growth of a particular Skill applied to serving the community.
  • Lesson admins earn each point by managing a learning Event with enough ranked participants to qualify for a single point upgrade.
  • • top •
What are Spelling Days?
  • Each Specialty Skill ("Spell") category and Mission Medal is grouped under a classification system using days of the week from Monday to Saturday.
  • This framework is inspired by the MLX story project and it reflects the cyclical nature of our learning method. The "Sunday" category is reserved for administrative tasks.
  • • top •
What are Mission Medals?
  • Medals are awarded to Lesson admins for achieving a collection of ranks in related Spells.
  • These function as academic degree programs and are permanently locked into the system as opposed to Spell Points that can be lost over time from inactivity.

What is a Branch College?

  • Each Branch pledges a pre-set amount of its Voting points to its Varsity to support mission activities.
  • • top •
Why are there Numbered Spots?
  • Numbered spots are linked together with a 3-letter Campus Code to easily identify a particular sub-divisional unit within the network.

Why should I make a Payment?
  • In order to sustain the Kindren Tree mission, we need to acquire funding through Sponsored Payments.
  • These payments come in the form of Branch Membership pledges to help cover the expenses of running the network.

  • These points are essential to how Teams, Branches and their Members conduct activities within the system.

What is a "QuiBall" Conflict?
  • "QuiBall" is the name of the Conflict Resolution system used by Kindren Tree Members.
  • It's designed as a creative collaboration between conflicting parties to solve problems. Campus Haven Councils process each Quib Conflict like a coach helping its players to reach an ideal resolution.
  • The Plaintiff party is the "Pitcher" who pitches a reasonable "Quib" problem to the defendant "Catcher" party who must then use community resources to solve the issue. A good Resolution can bring rewards for everyone involved.
  • • top •
I'm NOT a Member. How do I submit a Conflict?
  • First, go to the personal web link found on the profile page of the Branch to which you wish to pitch the problem.
  • Contact the Branch admins through the information provided on their community homepage. They can give you a special passcode link to an online form where you enter information describing the problem. The Haven Council will choose to either process the submitted Conflict or reject it as a failed Pitch.
  • NOTE: There may be a non-refundable fee for the Haven Council to process non-Member disputes.
