The study was conducted on a sample of 112 students divided into two groups; the experimental group (n = 56; age = 15.46 ± 0.50; body mass = 63.03 ± 3.93; height = 166.09 ± 4.79) and the control group (n = 56, age = 15.55 ± 0.56; body mass = 63.87 ± 4.40; height = 165.8 ± 4.92). The experiment examined the integration of ICT in physical education during a cycle of eight sessions of long jump. The objective of the study was to measure the cognitive and motor variables of each group to test the effect of this integration on the students' skills. The repeated measures ANOVA test is also used in this study to verify the null hypothesis; the pre-test and post-test means of the experimental group and the pre-test and post-test means of the control group are equal. The results showed a significant difference at the alpha level = 0.05 and df = 55, in favor of the post-test measures of the experimental group for the variables measured in the study. In conclusion, digital collaboration provides an effective response to physical education teachers who today need to find a new form of motor learning, less intrusive and more intelligent, as Nadam (2022) says. The digital teaching strategy is based on the principle of sharing teaching content with the right student, at the right time, and in the right context.
