ABSTRACT

Education 4.0 has emphasised on the integration of information and communication technology (ICT) in education. Enhancing the creative and innovative thinking among pre-service teachers has become one of the important elements in Education 4.0. Most of the art students, who take Form Four economics in secondary schools, generally face difficulties in mastering economic concepts. In order to make the lessons more interesting and easy to remember, the economics teachers should develop some innovative teaching and learning methods to attract students’ attention. This study aimed to examine pre-service teachers’ learning interest. This study also further examined the understanding of economics concepts. Learning with songs can make learning activities more interesting for the class, especially with music videos. This study employed the survey as research method. A total of 50 pre-service teachers were employed randomly as samples. From the findings, music videos can enhance learning interest among pre-service teachers. In addition, the data also indicated a positive result for students’ understanding with music videos. Future study will focus on video making combined with augmented reality.
