A NEW TOOL IN TEACHERS’ HAND: EYE TRACKING FOR ENHANCING VISUAL INFORMATION PROCESSING

G. Bujdosó

University of Debrecen, Faculty of Computer Science (HUNGARY)
Visual information processing play much more important role than in the past. The next generations have skills to read and understand visualized information very fast, but they are under motivated to learn material with full of text. They need to have more and more information in visualized form; i.e., they are conditioned to learn in this way. Those students, who live in the digital world, have to get the important information in well-illustrated materials, where the information is sliced into well-defined, elementary pieces, and illustrations can show these information elements in an unequivocal way. It means for us that we have to teach students in teacher training how to prepare electronic learning materials in this modern style. They have to pay more attention on visualization of information, they have to know how to slice information into compact pieces, what kind of techniques they have for visualization, how they can use the available assets. This methodology is in the focus of teacher training. Using eye tracking for examining the results of the students’ works makes the learning process faster because they can see the results and effects of the designed material almost immediately.

In this presentation we would like to show the results of a survey of using eye tracking in teacher training for visualization of information and using illustrations in learning materials. This is an important part of our endeavors to develop the students’ skills for preparing efficient electronic learning material.
