If you have always thought using that eyegaze with your students with physical disabilities would be way too time consuming and far too complicated to get going, the new Inclusive EyeGaze Foundations with myGaze Eye Tracker bundle from Inclusive Technology in the UK may help to change your mind! Its ease-of-use was certainly very popular at our Inclusive Learning Technologies Conference in May this year.
The MyGaze Eye Tracker hardware
Check out this short YouTube clip showing just how easy it is to set up the MyGaze Eye Tracker to work on a computer. That’s it for the hardware! Its simple three-step process takes seconds to set up for your students. No training required.
The Inclusive EyeGaze software
The Inclusive EyeGaze Attention and Looking Software is also included in this bundle. 18 carefully graded activities that take users from the first experiential steps, through cause-and-effect to targeting and choice making. Students can learn to track, fix their gaze and interact with images on screen. Uniquely this technology also allows real-time recording of progress allowing you to play back and review where students looked and for how long via line trace, video and heat maps. You can also print out results and reports.
What else can you do with myGaze Eye Tracker?
The myGaze Eye Tracker will follow your eye movements so that you can move the cursor around the screen, select or ‘click’ on images by looking at them a little longer and drag the cursor around the screen. This means you can play lots of your favourite software games and activities, including the following and many more!
