Eye gaze is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to show their choices and build learning. Where pupils may struggle to use a computer or touch AAC, eye gaze technology can offer an alternative way to access the computer.
How does Eye Gaze work?
The system works by using lights and cameras that picks up reflections in the eyes and translates the movement of the eyes into mouse cursor movements.
What can you do with it?
We start with a learning system called “insight.” This is an intelligent, individualised learning system that will help engage, assess and develop the pupils visual leaning skills. We can analyse “looking” behaviours to get a unique insight into a pupil’s hidden skills and capabilities, using smart analysis to precisely measure progress over time. The pupils learning goals focus on key milestones, following their developmental progression. These steps developing visual and cognition skills, building on their learning engagement.
What can it lead to?
The benefits of using Eye Gaze technology are amazing for our pupils. Through the data tracking system we can clearly see the progress they are making. Pupils who were thought to have a severe visual impairment, that would limit their access to technology, are now progressing through the learning system. Knowing the best position to present objects or symbols for the pupil ensures the pupils can start to make meaningful choices. Pupils can progress to using eye gaze technology to access a high tech communication device offering them a powerful, portable and individual communication solution “their voice”.
