GLEANing the Socialscape: Graziadio's Learning Environment and Network

Monday, April 5, 2010


At Pepperdine’s Graziadio School of Business and Management, GLEAN is a “personal collection of online tools to learn, gather, discover, and form insights, bit by bit.” Powered by Google Apps, GLEAN is a stable framework that integrates and uniformly authenticates our traditional learning systems with an ever-growing collection of “long-tail” Web 2.0 and social media tools. In this webinar learn how such a framework could be easily replicated at your own institution. We will identify the issues that provided the impetus to implement such a framework and outline GLEAN’s technological infrastructure, followed by a discussion of its implementation, rollout, ongoing support, and assessment. Delving deeper into the pedagogical implications, we will highlight the integration of a Facebook-like social network and its impact and potential as a robust social constructivist learning tool.
