How Edtech is fueling equity and closing gaps in education
— the journey from research to commercialization with eye tracking
Two of our EdTech partners, BrainLeap and Lexplore, have followed similar paths in the development of their commercial solutions. Both companies have successfully leveraged research findings to create innovative digital solutions that have the potential to raise equity in education, close gaps, and help kids who may otherwise face life-long learning and participation issues.
The path from research to viable commercial product is paved with a ton of decisions and investment. It’s one thing to use eye tracking in a lab to observe the reading competency or attention variation of a seven-year-old. But it’s a completely different ball game to leverage research findings into a solution that scales and a business that is viable — but that’s what BrainLeap and Lexplore have done, and here is how they did it.
Webinar — how to turn eye tracking research into EdTech innovation
Our two partners talk about eye tracking and the key role our technology has played throughout their journey to commercialization. But perhaps more significantly, they talk about how closing gaps and raising equity in education are being transformed with AI and technologies that not only deliver insights at the research phase but also scale to meet commercialization and equity demands.

Customer success stories
Fueling equity in education with EdTech — a success story by BrainLeap and Tobii
To stimulate the kind of digital transformation needed in education, the US government has allocated considerable funding for tech startups and small businesses looking to leverage research and scientific findings to build next-gen solutions that will not only have an impact on millions of people but will do so in a commercially viable manner.
In this success story, we cover BrainLeap Technologies’ journey from research and innovation to commercialization, how they have leveraged scientific findings in their game-based attention training solution, and their vision to unlock the potential of over a million children every year.
Using AI to close the literacy gap — a success story by Lexplore and Tobii
In this success story, we cover how Lexplore have leveraged years of eye tracking based scientific research about reading. They have created a rapid PC-based AI solution that will help to close the literacy gap by freeing up teacher time for remediation and follow-up.
Reading is an essential element of primary education, yet the traditional process of screening and analysis that helps teachers figure out which kids need help is labor-intensive and time-consuming. Some kids are still falling through the net, leaving school with functional literacy to face a life with poor job prospects, low self-esteem, and participation issues.
