Data helps educators identify difficult areas for students, and pinpoint objectives needing to be taught more thoroughly or differently. Typically, data has been collected through using paper and pencil. However, with the onset of data driven education decision making, data collection needs and methods are evolving.
This webinar introduces using the eye tracking technology and gaze viewer software from TobiiDynavox for data collection. This unique approach to data collection is revolutionary as these tools are the first of their kind to be applied to education. Using this technology, educators can focus on curriculum and instruction while still collecting data.

Learning Objectives

  1. 1. Participants will be able to define “gaze plots” and “heat maps”
  2. 2. Participants will be able to state three types of educational activities where eye tracking technology could be used for data collection.
  3. 3. Participants will be able to state how data is being used by school districts.
  4. 4. Participants will be able to state two methods that districts currently use to collect data.
