Abstract

This paper describes the results of a value analysis of adopting a technology-supported attendance control service in a primary school. The results are based on a case study that explored a 14-week trial where two classes of elementary school children used an attendance control system that was implemented using networked technology components, including smart cards, NFC-enabled mobile phones and card readers, a web-portal, and SMS messaging. Even though the design goals of the system were directed towards creating value primarily for the parents and teachers, the analysis of subjective perceived value showed that the children were the most satisfied user group of the system. A model of human values adopted from social psychology was used for modeling and interpreting the value experienced by the children.
