Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between teachers' Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and their Teacher Professional Development (TPD). A total of 305 secondary physical education pre-service teachers (S-PEPT) participated in this study. In this study, two questionnaires, TPACK and TPD, were used. As a result, the confirmatory factor analysis showed that the two questionnaires used in this study were valid and reliable. In addition, S-PEPT's TPACK highly correlated with their TPD. Finally, according to path analysis, the result indicated that S-PEPT's PCK and TCK could significantly predict their TPD. The implication of this study showed that S-PEPT with more knowledge of ITassisted teaching may therefore increase the IT usage in the classroom, and then have more competencies to face the diverse students and environment of the 21st century.
