Presentation title
Investigating the relationship between prereaders’ visual attention and their storytelling ability after listening to passages with/without pictures with support from the eye tracker
Presentation abstract
In the Malaysian context, there are numerous studies that explored young learners’ literacy skills but none that uses the eye-tracking device to track the cognitive processes of prereaders when they are reading picture storybooks. For this project 22 prereaders (4-5 years old) listened to brief stories in four conditions: (a) only static text with narration (text condition), (b) oral narration and a picture that was congruent with the narration (congruent condition), (c) oral narration and an incongruent picture (incongruent condition), and (d) only picture with text but no oral narration (control condition). For the qualitative inquiry, the 22 prereaders were divided into three categories “Good”, “Average”, and “Weak” based on the ratings done by three independent raters on the quality of their storytelling. The patterns of their storytelling will be explored to see how their storytelling are affected by the four conditions and objects specifically mentioned in the stories. These findings will be correlated with the results of their eye movements derived from eye-tracking analysis to enable a better understanding of how the inclusion of pictures facilitates understanding of the narration and influence comprehensive ability. The findings and implications will be shared during the presentation.
