Insight is a groundbreaking intelligent learning and assessment tool that objectively measures early vision and cognition behaviours using eye gaze technology.
Featuring engaging, small step progressive teaching activities, Insight uses eye gaze to assess vision and cognition behaviours of students with even the most complex learning needs:
With some students with complex and profound physical cognitive and communication needs – teachers just don’t know where to begin.
Students with a combination of:
Physical disabilities – lack of motor control that makes it very difficult to accurately or consistently touch a screen or hit a switch.
Communication challenges – a lack of expressive communication so even the most dedicated communication partners can’t accurately determine what the student wants, needs and what their challenges are.
Sensory impairments – without clear communication, even extremely knowledgeable clinicians can’t be certain what the student can see or hear, and how to improve these sensory experiences.
Combining these issues together, it is very difficult for an education team to know where they can begin. What skills are there that can be built on? Eye gaze is the most direct form of expression and reaction and can offer a whole new way for our most challenging students to connect with their world.
With Insight’s eye-gaze powered, engaging activities and unique analytics, educators and clinicians can capture and build-on reactive and expressive vision and cognition behaviours.
Insight is the first ever intelligent learning system to offer objective measurement of the core skills essential for early learning. The result is an unparalleled level of understanding of a student that can reveal previously hidden potentials.
But Insight isn’t just about analysis and understanding. Insight’s simple and engaging computer activities build on each other in incremental steps. So, with Insight, our most challenging students can build skills and make real strides in developing expressive communication.
Insight is used typically in a school with students with profound physical or cognitive needs.
Insight is a web-based service that will work with any eyegaze camera that emulates mouse cursor movement on the screen.
A student will try a variety of activities suggested by the software. Dozens of activities work on different skills and behaviours such as reaction, recognizing images, fixating, anticipation and more. Insight suggests new activities based on the scoring of previously completed activities.
Insight was built to support Individualized Learning. Students can work on the same core skills, while working at their own pace and to their own strengths. Teachers and students are led through the Intelligent Individualized Learning Cycle.
For educators, the results will re-frame the skills and abilities of students of all ages, with complex physical, sensory, and learning needs.
Ongoing assessment and analysis delivers objective clear understanding of behaviours.
Track performance in all learning goals to give a snapshot of overall progress.
Specially designed activities are arranged in a Progressive Road Map based on well-respected special education assessment and teaching techniques plus the latest clinical theories.
Each skill is broken into small incremental steps to ensures success and motivation at each learning stage. Intelligent suggestions across a wide range of learning goals are based on scores, skill progression plus eye gaze data from peer groups. Insight has a wide variety of new and exciting content keeps learners of all ages engaged.
Results are generated from Intelligent Analytics, based on real data, that can help educators discover students’ skills and inform instruction. The results also offer a helpful interpretation to guide educators in understanding results and next steps.
