Many examples of learning and skill-building resources, available online or created with popular software applications, will be shared with participants.myGaze® is an award-winning eye tracker specifically designed for the classroom, with teachers and care-givers in mind. It's a plug-and-play device built by Visual Interaction, a leader in the eye tracking field. Fast, lightweight, and very accurate, it can be set up and utilized without specific training.
