ABSTRACT

The rapid development of advanced learning technology requires teachers to make various innovations in the learning activities. The use of social media-based technology is one of the alternatives. This study aimed to investigate the Physical Education teacher's perspectives on using TikTok social media in the learning activities. The study was conducted through a survey method of 125 physical education teachers in Jakarta, Bogor, Tangerang, and Bekasi (Jabotabek), Indonesia. The study findings showed that 45.6% of physical education teachers used TikTok social media accounts; 44.5% stated that the TikTok application could be used in teaching and learning activities; 45.8% emphasized that the TikTok application attracts students' attention; 53.6% affirmed that the TikTok application is more user-friendly compared to other social media applications; 49.2% answered that teaching material was provided using the TikTok application; only 37.8% showed that the lack of existing features was the reason respondents did not use the TikTok application, and 50.2% had used the TikTok application for rhythmic gymnastics activities. According to the study results, it can be concluded that physical education teachers have used TikTok social media in learning activities but they are still limited to rhythmic gymnastics activities. It is recommended that physical education teachers develop other teaching materials for different sports units, not only limited to rhythmic gymnastics activities, so that students can explore their learning activities more diversely.
