Unique Contributions of Eye-Tracking Research to the Study of Learning with Graphics
Mayer, Richard E.
Learning and Instruction, v20 n2 p167-171 Apr 2010
The author examines the empirical, methodological, theoretical, and practical contributions of the six studies in this special issue on eye tracking as a tool to study and enhance multimedia learning. The design of learning environments involving graphics should be consistent with a research-based theory of how people learn and evidence-based principles of how to help people learn. Research using eye tracking offers a unique path to testing aspects of theories of multimedia learning, particularly concerning perceptual processing during learning. The studies reported in this special issue add to the evidence base on how people learn and think with graphics. (Contains 4 tables.)
