Title : Insights on the use of Eye Tracking technology on CALL research
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Eye-tracking (ET) technology has only recently been used in CALL despite the fact that it has been around for over 100 of years and extensively used in reading research. From my previous presentations of ET research studies at CALL conferences,  I found that many delegates were still not sure what ET research were all about,  how to conduct research using this technology and the relevance of ET technology to CALL. This presentation hopes to address this gap in knowledge by providing the basic information to help beginners venture into this field.  It will begin by giving a brief introduction of what ET technology is and then proceed  to explain how  CALL research can  be conducted using ET technology and at the same time pointing out the  strengths and pitfalls of using ET technology in CALL research. Finally,  it will  describe some studies including some of mine  that utilise  ET technology to investigate issues related to  CALL and how these studies enlighten CALL research.
