Introducing the 4MAT 2018 Research Guide, a free resource from About Learning. 

As more educators and trainees embrace the 4MAT Model of Learning, they seek research that proves its effectiveness and The 4MAT 2018 Research Guide helps fill that expanding need. This books includes 3 sections, including…

An Historical Perspective of 4MAT

This first section features the primary research theories and educational philosophies of those who form the base of the 4MAT Model. The work and insights of the researchers listed here have inspired the foundation of 4MAT regarding the nature of learning: The making of meaning, in a learner-centered, experiential cycle, through ordering and constructing knowledge of understandings not yet known, by naming experience in dialogue from individual internal frames of reference in a social process based on sharing power.

An Overview of The 4MAT Model

The Model is described with the details of the eight steps.

The Latest Research and Studies on the Impact of the 4MAT Model

The final section is a compilation of some of the research from our first studies of 4MAT in 1985 to the present. These include some of the latest work being done in Saudi Arabia, Ankara University, Thailand and the School of Pedagogical Sciences at Mahatma Gandhi University. These were chosen as a cross-section of a typical sample from a much larger group.
