Abstract

Children’s enjoyable learning in the preschool classroom was found to be unsatisfactory. This is because, children are weak in understanding mathematics subjects due to the teaching and learning methods of teachers who still use conventional teaching methods and do not provide attractive teaching aids to children causing children not to concentrate and disturb other peers. This study was conducted to test the use of interactive multimedia to improve the use of teaching aids in the learning of preschool children. The study design used was a qualitative study using observation, interview and pre and post test methods. The instruments of this study consisted of observations in terms of children’s work results and checklists, interviews as well as pre and post tests. The sample of this study consisted of 5 children of Al-Karim class at Sekolah Kebangsaan Tengku Mahmud. Data analysis was done using microsoft words and the findings showed that the use of interactive multimedia in teaching and facilitation (PdPc) can improve the understanding and concentration of preschool children and children enjoy using interactive multimedia. In conclusion, it is clear to prove that the approach of using interactive multimedia in teaching children in preschool class has changed children's behavior in terms of children's active involvement.
