EyeLearn: Using visualizations of eye movements to enhance metacognition, motivation and learning

Project: Research

Layman's description

The overall goal of this project is to implement a technological classroom of tomorrow, which can be used for studying, supporting and improving metacognitive reflection in pupils in Compulsory and Upper Secondary School. We development and implement a eyetracking-based tools in which we can also measure, quantify and improve learning behaviour,

The overall objective of the project is to build a high-tech classroom to study, support and enhance metacognitive reflection of pupils in primary and secondary schools. The project consists of three phases:
1: Develop methods to better study skills through reflection on students' problem-solving strategies based on visualizations of eye movement patterns.
2: Systematic testing of the methods in selected schools in Lund.
3: Embedding foveation support in digital learning to enhance possibilities for reflection on self-study and adapt learning materials to different abilities and preferences.

In the digital classroom, we implement the method in full-scale, in collaboration with teachers at three schools. The project interacts with the teacher training program at Lund University, where the goal is to develop research-based teachingmodules. Of great importance is to create a classroom of the future, where e-learning and digital media are central to teaching, and where we can measure, quantify and improve learning behavior.
