This article aims to describe the pedagogical competence of elementary school teachers in West Bandung Regency in the era of the industrial revolution 4.0. Data was obtained through a community service program that included elementary school teachers in West Bandung Regency. The program went well, and the teacher expressed his understanding of the pedagogical competence of teachers in the era of the industrial revolution 4.0, however, the observations on implementation indicated 1) the use of digital technology that educates in learning has not been widely applied; 2) understanding the characteristics of students and effective learning in the era of the industrial revolution 4.0 is not yet fully mastered by teachers, and 3) teacher enthusiasm in community service activities. In this regard, it is essential to study more deeply about teachers as lifelong learners who have high enthusiasm in developing themselves. The teacher also needs to understand the characteristics of students, so they can educate them appropriately. Furthermore, it is also necessary to understand that education is a system in which all components are integrated for the operation of the system. For the creation of a good education, all factors in education need to be considered.
