4MAT is a framework for teaching created by Bernice McCarthy that addresses the four learning styles of our students.
Who are Our Four Types of Learners?
1- Imaginative Learners: Need to be involved personally; learn by listening and sharing ideas
2- Analytic Learners: Seek facts; need to know what the experts think; (schools are designed for these listeners)
3- Common Sense Learners: Seek usability; need to know how things work; function through inferences drawn from sensory experience
4- Dynamic Learners: Seek hidden possibilities; need to know what can be done with things; learn by trial and error, self-discovery
