Abstract—This study examined the Filipino physical education (PE) teachers’ technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) on remote digital teaching approach. More specifically, it looked into their preparedness on remote digital teaching using the TPACK model, the relationship between their demographics, and the seven dimensions of knowledge of TPACK model and its interrelationship using a descriptive correlational research design. The sample was composed of 1,402 PE teachers across the three major islands of the Philippines who, using online survey, answered a 19-item questionnaire with a five-point Likert scale about their TPACK on remote digital teaching. Using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Chi-Square test of Independence, the study yielded four major results: 1) PE teachers have an average level of preparedness to conduct remote digital teaching in all domains of knowledge of TPACK; 2) The preparedness level of the PE teachers to conduct remote digital teaching in all domains of knowledge of TPACK is dependent to their age, sex and teaching experience, except technological knowledge, as it is independent to their highest educational attainment; and 3). There is a significant interrelationship on the PE teachers’ preparedness to conduct remote digital teaching among all domains of knowledge of TPACK. Hence, in order to successfully navigate a paradigm in education that accentuates the utilization of technology and other digital platforms, teachers have to be equipped with the tri-relationship of knowledge – content, pedagogy, and technology – through capability-building activities that consider their demographics and background.
