Abstract: As educational institutions look to the future, there is growing interest in constructing technology-rich classrooms. Using a three-part study, this research examined the relationship between pedagogy and socio-technological spaces in a college-level physics course. The first part looked at the effect of implementing socio-technological environments on students' conceptual change, while comparing implementations made with different pedagogies (active learning vs. `enabled-traditional' instruction). The second looked at the students' perceptions of this new learning space. The last examined the effect of the instructors' perception of their instructional approach (teacher-centered versus student- centered) on students' conceptual learning. Findings show that active instructional approaches are an essential condition for success of socio-technological spaces. Students who received an active learning pedagogy achieved greater conceptual gains and were more able to take up the affordances for learning of the environment.
