Abstract: Students´ physical inactivity during school day, decreased motivation and interest in studying natural sciences are alarming trends in Finland. The purpose of this pilot study is to develop such new methods for learning and teaching physics at upper secondary education that combine the use of ICT and bodily methods in authentic learning environments. We aim to explore how students perceive these new methods of learning physics and how the methods influence learning results. The study also has a methodological development task with the aim of identifying different pupil profiles through the use of unsupervised machine learning in order to obtain ...
