Abstract: Learning spaces that focus on technology in addition to writing and speaking are quickly becoming the norm, much like the newest learning space at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. As “many of the traditional expectations of faculty and students about where and how learning occurs have become unstable … and the nature of knowledge production has changed drastically from print to pixels,” technology-enhanced media labs, library commons spaces, and multimodal support services that were once unusual and new-fangled are starting to become a logical extension of the ways people learn, find information, know, and create content (Elmborg, 2005, p. 7).
