WHAT HAPPENS HERE?

Is using mobile media beneficial for learning? Participants will learn about eye-tracking technology and how it is used to understand attention and learning from mobile media. We will showcase videos of eye-tracking research in action, explaining how to use eye-tracking glasses to track eye movements moment by moment while viewers are in motion.

WHAT WAS THE PROCESS?

Our audience will learn about eye-tracking technology and how it is used to understand attention to and learning from mobile media. We will showcase videos of eye-tracking research in action. In these videos, participants wear eye-tracking glasses and watch videos on a screen through two conditions: either by holding the screen (portable) or leaving the screen on a table (fixed). We will then look at which condition results in better attention to and comprehension of video. This will help the audience to think about how mobile media affects their attention and learning. Learn more.
