Abstract

This study combines ambient intelligence with wireless grids to investigate social interactions in emerging and next generation technology-pervasive environments. The use experience of postsecondary students and faculty with WeJay social radio is explored in a virtual distributed environment. The research literature on 21st century social sciences, wireless grids, ambient intelligence, and futures studies provides a theoretical framework for the exploration of social interactions with emerging technologies. The research design incorporates a case study approach, employing multiple methods of inquiry and analysis. Focusing on information-based social interactions in technology-pervasive environments, this study proposes an interaction dynamic, a conceptual model, and a research agenda for a 21st century ambient learning and information society.
