About me


My research concern the communication of physics in the classroom processes, both between pupils / students and teachers, and between pupils / students during group activities. I analyze group discussions (using both qualitative and quantitative methods) for solving problems in physics, and class discussions primarily in high schools, but also in primary school and college, from a learning perspective. One focus is how different multimodal representations, as images, animations, graphs, diagrams, equations, text and spoken language and web-based resources affect learning and learning environment for students and pupils. How are young people opportunities for activities such as writing, discuss, experiment and create linked to how they get into a topic of discourse? What design principles are relevant?
