The aim of this paper is to explore ambient learning and emergent learning in the context of emerging and next generation technologies such as wireless grids. Using WeJay, an early pre-standards social radio tool, research with faculty and students provides insight into the potential of wireless grids for learning in distributed technology-pervasive environments. Findings are interpreted in terms of their implications for educational, research, and practice settings. Expanded notions of workplace, educational spaces, and places of research are advanced together with the value and importance of leveraging associated learning and predictive analytics data. This paper contributes to research on: ambient and emergent learning, pervasive learning spaces (PLSs), ambient intelligence (AmI), and wireless grids. Responding to earlier calls for a new research agenda around learning in technology-pervasive environments for the 21st century, this paper elucidates a new learning approach based on ambient intelligence (AmI) with wireless grids.
