Research Impact: This paper sought to critically explore what areas of pedagogy are claimed to be enhanced by digital technology in PE. It presented how technology was largely seen to enhance students’ learning in relation to both health and motivational variables. most of the papers seemed to replicate existing practices, such as using tablets as whiteboards or some apps to create time intervals and signals. Technology was mainly used as substitute for the teacher but not as transforming teaching and learning practices by allowing for significant task redesign or the creation of new tasks previously inconceivable without the use of technology. We reiterate colleagues’ advice to be braver and bolder in critical thought regarding what outcomes are being sought to enhance through the use of technology and planning aligned teaching and learning experiences accordingly.
