Eye tracking is used in studies to examine education and learning processes. In addition, classrooms and labs are being equipped with this technology in order to teach tomorrow's workforce how to employ eye tracking in different fields.
Eye tracking is a great tool to study visual attention and social interaction in all learning settings. By understanding how different aspects of the knowledge process shape educational outcomes, researchers can effectively design, evaluate, and improve education.
Eye tracking helps you discover:
• Differences in information gathering
• Differences in problem-solving skills
• Differences in learning strategies
• Social interaction patterns from the teacher to the student
• Social interaction among students to support the learning process
• How different educational materials work
Eye tracking is a tool used in educational research in order to understand the knowledge process, cognitive load on students, and teaching methods. The results help design and improve the learning environment.
Understanding educational contexts
Eye tracking can capture interesting insights about student learning behaviour and teaching methods in a broad range of educational situations. The data from an eye tracker can reveal different learning strategies for researchers to better understand student cognitive workload. This information can also be used to evaluate teacher performance and instruction methods.
By understanding the classroom dynamics, including interaction between students and teachers, researchers can define appropriate training programs and instructions in order to improve education.
