Abstract Title: Eye-Tracking Student Attention: A Case-Study On An ADD Student
Abstract: Student attention has long been studied in various ways: analyzing notebooks, observation, assessments measuring retention, even heart rates.  However, new technologies can provide deeper insights. Eye-tracking is a tool that allows educational researchers investigating student attention to follow what they look at during a class.  This research is a case-study that focuses on one student for an entire semester as she attends her class.  This student is also diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. She is an elementary education major who is required to take this physical science content course. She wore a pair of Tobii Glasses every lecture.  The data was recorded and manually coded in one second intervals based upon where she was looking. We analyzed the data and report on the trends discovered. Finally we followed up with an interview with her where she watched her own data from a class she had just finished.
