Education

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.

Understanding different aspects of learning

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

Cases

Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

The Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies at the Slovak University of Technology, the largest and oldest university of technology in Slovakia, has introduced a fully-equipped eye tracking classroom, as well as an eye tracking lab. Read more

Kennesaw State University

Eye tracking was used in this preliminary research study by Kennesaw State University to investigate student gaze patterns during physical science lectures. It discovered that classroom attention is impacted by various factors throughout the duration of the lecture. Read more

Western Kentucky University

Eye tracking was used in a visual communication research project on information concerning potable water. Researchers from Western Kentucky University investigated the effectiveness of visual design on instructional materials intended to educate West African residents about personal and public water use, water pollution and conservation.
