Abstract

The purpose of this article is to canvass the advantages of using eye-tracking technologies for applications in learning and education. More than 80% of the course of human cognitive processing is based on information acquired from visual modals. Eye movement plays an unrivaled role in inferring a given individual internal state. Recent developments in eye tracking technology have shown a powerful natural and real-time measuring for cognition, emotion, and motivation. This is evidenced from a wide range of reported studies and researches. We reviewed the representative research of reading, problem-solving, teaching, affect disposition, and other issues by displaying how eye-tracking technology can support advanced studies on mental processes. In addition, basic mechanical concepts, indicators, operation methods, and data analysis for the use of eye-tracking technology were introduced and discussed.
