Digitalisation more and more impacts todays’ everyday life, not least our schools and, thus, pupils. Accordingly, educational concepts as well as teaching strategies have been revised considering media competences as an integrative part of all school subjects’ curricula. However, possible implementations of media competences into school sport or, more precisely, physical education remain to be elucidated. On the basis of a media competency framework, six defined media competences were conceptually reviewed regarding their potential to meet the aims of physical education in Germany. Suggesting practical ideas for selected pedagogical perspectives, findings underline a promising potential of teaching and promoting media competences in physical education; however, remaining challenges were identified. Consequently, combining aims of the core curriculum as well as the media competency framework seems crucial, whereas a separated approach may be questionable.
