Abstract

This paper reports the implementation of the Story-me system, consisting of a slots-machine-like device used by older adults, and a cellphone application used by their children, which aims to facilitate intergenerational life story and family memento story sharing. In the field study, seven pairs of participants (each pair consisting of an elderly adult and his/her child) were recruited to use the system. Semi-structured interviews were conducted both with both the senior and young participants. The stories collected were transcribed and analyzed, and the findings. Conclusion and future work are in the final part.
