Abstract

Purpose: A radio-frequency identification (RFID) smart watch can provide older adults with fall detection, medical emergency alarming, vital sign recording, and medication reminder applications (Figure 1); however, the prevalence of utilization is rather low. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of an innovative teaching model on the utilization of smart watches. Study findings are intended to develop a creative, user-centered, and inexpensive service procedure for older adults to increase smart watch utilization. Method: This study is a quasiexperimental design with two groups, including one experimental and one control group. Each group consists of 15 dyads of a student and an older adult. Fifteen students enrolled in the Smart Living curriculum were in the experimental group, and received the service-learning teaching method, while another 15 students were enrolled in the control group without receiving the service-learning teaching method. in pre- and post-tests, T-edu questionnaires were used to assess students' five learning effects including observation experience, design thinking, technology innovation, reflection feedback, and interdisciplinary collaboration. The T-edu questionnaire has good reliability and validity. On the other hand, older adults' were assessed on their utilization of the smart watches. T-tests were used to determine the outcome of students' learning effects and the older adults' smart watch use. Results & Discussion: Results showed that the students enrolled in the experiment group not only performed better but also obtained better self-assessments for learning outcomes. Secondly, older adults' utilization of smart watches was four times longer in duration (Figure 2) for the experimental group; moreover, feedback from older adults in the experimental group are useful and specific, especially regarding falling detection and monitoring. Finally, we found the key factor affecting older adults' smart watch utilizationis not in watch function, but in the services provided. A business model may be developed based on the finding of this study.
