Ms. Knabe is interested in understanding children’s visual attention during word learning. Using a Tobii X3-120 eye-tracker, she assessed children’s looking to several aspects of a word learning . She plans to use an eye tracking paradigm to investigate how the textual characteristics of dual-language storybooks impact dual-language learning.
