In this paper we described how to build an inexpensive eye-tracker and to apply it social inclusion and educational activities in schools. The building of the device includes both the construction of the eye-tracking headset as well as the implementation of the code for translating eye trajectories into output data which can afterwards be analyzed and modeled. The procedure is cheap and can be easily implemented in high-schools and ﬁrst-years undergraduate courses, to teach speciﬁc matters in computer sciences, physical sciences and mathematics. Moreover, we also discuss up to which extension such a cheap device can substitute commercial solutions for promoting social inclusion, particularly to develop empathy in communities by showing the diﬃculties behind eye-movement languages used by non-verbal paralyzed individuals.
