The way students learn could be greatly transformed by technology. It might encourage teachers to reconsider how to work together and improve the learning process to take into account the needs of all students. Due to the sudden changes brought about by the pandemic, educational institutions currently learn to adopt online learning. This study was conducted to study the usage and effectiveness of technological applications (TApps) in science teaching in public junior high schools in Caloocan, Philippines. Forty-one (41) science teachers from three (3) different schools were selected through purposive sampling. It revealed that Messenger, PowerPoint, and Google Meet were the most commonly used by junior high school science teachers during online teaching while Messenger, PowerPoint, and Canva were the most effective technological applications in their online teaching. In the return of the full implementation of face-to-face classes, PowerPoint, Messenger, and Canva were the most often used and the most effective technological applications used by science teachers. However, poor internet connectivity was the major problem encountered during the use of technological applications in teaching both online and face-to-face. Finally, most of the respondents (73%) still use and will continue to use the TApps in the post-pandemic implementation of face-to-face classes for they believe that using TApps, though not required, is needed in teaching nowadays to make the lesson interactive and enjoyable. This study shows that teachers’ adaptability like embracing TApps are essential in ensuring a more personalized and engaging learning process for the benefit of both teachers and students.
