    Challenges in the provision of digital technologies to elderly with dementia to support ageing in place: A case study of a Swedish municipality2021In: Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology, ISSN 1748-3107, E-ISSN 1748-3115, Vol. 16, no 7, p. 758-768Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this paper is to identify structural problems and challenges for the delivery of digital technologies for ageing in place to elderly with dementia.

    Methods: To that end, I conducted a case study in a Swedish municipality.

    Results: The results showed that elderly with dementia are not exploiting their full potential of receiving help in the form of technology, since the four conditions of the Consumer Direction (Control and Direct services – Variety of digital technologies for ageing in place options – Information and Support – Participation in systems design) were met to a very low degree.

    Conclusions: I propose that the municipality in question creates a proper knowledge-sharing platform so that occupational therapists are well informed about digital technologies for ageing in place, to allow them to provide accurate information and support to elderly with dementia, resulting in a possible increase in use of technology and subsequently support the empowerment goal of Consumer Direction. I also believe, according to the findings of this study, that the module of Information and Support should be treated as the most important condition for achieving increased Consumer Direction.

    Consumer direction in the field of digital technologies and people with dementia: a literature review2021In: Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology, ISSN 1748-3107, E-ISSN 1748-3115Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital technologies have a great potential to improve the quality of life of people with dementia. However, this group is usually not involved in their development and dissemination. A consumer-directed role in the delivery of digital technologies could allow this group to regain autonomy and certain independence. This article aims to conceptualise the components of the Consumer Direction theory in the context of digital technologies and people with dementia.

    Identifying digital solutions for people with dementia (PwD): Lessons learned from a Swedish dementia care residence2021In: Gerontechnology, ISSN 1569-1101, E-ISSN 1569-111X, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 1-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: With the ongoing rise of the elderly population and the subsequent number of dementia cases, digital technologies are often appearing to support people with dementia in their daily living activities. However, the majority of scientific literature tends to focus mostly on these digital technologies as sole solutions.

    Objective: Real-life implementations can be successful if we have a better understanding of the social, environmental, and technical aspects combined. Hence, this article reports a case study conducted in a Swedish dementia care residence to identify possible digital technologies’ needs.

    Method: A case study was conducted in a Swedish dementia care residence.

    Results: The results show that even though digital technologies are crucial in supporting both staff and residents, digital technologies alone cannot address the complex needs identified within the residence.

    Conclusion: For the digital technologies to be effective, they need to be integrated into the dementia care residence’s work processes and the capabilities of the current design of the property hosting the residence. Thus maintaining a socio-technical rather than a techno-centric perspective.

    Factors influencing seniors’ acceptance of technology for ageing in place in the post-implementation stage: A literature review2019In: International Journal of Medical Informatics, ISSN 1386-5056, E-ISSN 1872-8243, Vol. 129, p. 324-333Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: To identify factors that influence the acceptance of technology for ageing in place by seniors in the post-implementation stage. This review is among very few that focus on acceptance in post-implementation phase.

    Methods: A literature review. We searched six databases (Cinahl, Medline, PsycINFO, PubMed, Science Direct, Scopus). Inclusion criteria were: 1) original and peer-reviewed research written in English, 2) Articles published in 2010–2018, 3) Empirical research papers, 4) Research in which participants are seniors aged above 60 years, 5) Research aimed at investigating factors that influence the acceptance of digital technology for ageing in place, 6) Research conducted in home environment, 7) Focus on post-implementation stage.

    Results: Twenty-three out of 2181 papers were included. The results show that acceptance of technology in the post-implementation stage is influenced by 36 factors, divided into six themes: concerns/problems regarding technology (technical errors, etc.), experienced positive characteristics of technology (e.g., ease of use factors, privacy implications), expected benefits of technology (e.g., increased safety, companionship, increased security, etc.), need for technology (e.g., perceived need to use), social influence (e.g., influence by peers, family or surroundings) and characteristics of older adults (e.g., past experiences/attitudes, physical environment). The articles considered different types of technology: health monitoring, ADL, safety and communication. The level of technology readiness for digital technologies supporting ageing in place in post-implementation stage is still low within the scientific literature, since only seven out of 23 articles studied mature technologies (TRL 8–9 of the technology readiness level scale). The majority of the studies were conducted in Western Europe or the US, and only two were conducted in other regions (Australia, and Taiwan). Qualitative and quantitative methods were equally used in the analysed articles.

    Conclusions: Acceptance of technology in the post-implementation stage is influenced by multiple factors. An interesting finding was that the seniors’ views of technology change between the pre- and post-implementation stages. Some negative concerns that appeared in the pre-implementation stage appear as positive characteristics in the post-implementation stage. In the post-implementation stage, seniors realize the wide variety of benefits that technology can have on their lives. We expect that findings of this review can be utilised by academics and policy-makers for gaining insights for further research and successful implementation of technology for ageing in place.

    Usages and impacts of the integration of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in elementary classrooms: case study of Swedish municipality schools2017In: Interactive Learning Environments, ISSN 1049-4820, E-ISSN 1744-5191, Vol. 25, no 5, p. 561-579Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During recent years, many schools have started to implement information and communication technologies (ICTs)-based learning devices (such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and active boards) in the classroom settings in order to increase learning outcomes. The aim of this study is to find which activities and outcomes are evident in the usages of computing devices and how those devices aid elementary-level students in their learning activities. The study includes five overt participant observations at some schools in a Swedish municipality including unstructured interviews and explains the findings through activity theory and the Alberta Education Framework for Student Learning . The major activities found were dealing with the (1) educational application assignments, (2) storytelling, (3) report writing and (4) practical interaction assignments. We concluded that ICTs aid students in becoming more concentrated, focus driven, engaged and amused, thus learning becomes more interesting.
