Today, most of the teachers are not yet able to use Educational Technology Equipped Classrooms (ETEC). Defining new generation teaching techniques in ETEC may fill the gap between the current requirements of students and abilities of the teachers. By defining new generation teaching methods with ETEC, the teaching skills of teachers might be improved parallel to today's technology. This would result in the fulfilment of the students' educational needs. So, the purpose of this study is to explore the interaction of instructional material and instructor with eye tracking teaching techniques and methods in ETEC to meet the training requirements of teachers. As it was reviewed and reported by Tien, Pucher, Sodergren, Sriskandarajah, Yang and Darzi (2014) eye tracking was used to detect differences in expert and novice behaviours of surgeons. Won-Jung, Jung-Ho, Il-Sun and Yong-Ju (2012) used the eye-tracking methodology in order to define eye gaze differences between expert and novice teachers, teaching in science classes. The skills and methods needed for teaching lessons in ETEC can be revealed by the comparison of the eye movement behaviours between expert (n=3) and novice teachers (n=3). At the same time, the teachers' beliefs, perceptions and opinions about effective teaching and learning strategies can create a base for interpretation of quantitative data coming from eye tracking analysis. Sequential explanatory mixed method design was selected as the research methodology and quantitative data were collected. The study has been conducted at a middle school in Ankara, which has ETEC in accordance with FATIH Project. 3 expert and 3 novice teachers have been used to collect data.
