Education has incorporated ICTs into teaching work. The use of digital devices in Physical Education (PE) is a great resource for promoting physical activity and motivating students. The objective of this work was to search, analyse and compile published studies regarding the ICTs used in PE for the primary school context. A systematic search was carried out for articles indexed between 2016 and 2021 (first semester) in the WoS and PubMed databases. For its review, the criteria declared in the PRISMA methodology were used. Thus, 1130 articles were discriminated, leaving 18 papers for the final analysis according to previously established criteria. The results indicated six categories: a) new technologies and education; b) Flipped Learninig; c) Active Videogames; d) Activity and fitness monitoring; e) Smartphones, tablets, and computers; f) Web pages. The number of valued articles referring to the use of ICTs in PE in Primary is scarce. More studies must be carried out to expand knowledge and provide a scientific basis for teachers who want to put ICTs into practice in their classes.
