4MAT 설명 및 배경이론
4MAT is a thinking diagnostic program based on a thesis by pedagogical magnate and neuroscience expert Bernice McCarthy. 4MAT has been used as a tool for problem solving and creative thinking by the U.S. central government, departments of education, teacher and professor diagnostic programs, as well as global companies such as IKEA, 3M, and Boeing. In Korea, it was introduced and introduced in all business divisions including Samsung Electronics’ memory division, semiconductor research center, design laboratory, and wireless division in 2013.
The 4MAT diagnosis is designed to understand the differences and diversity in the way people learn. By understanding the natural learning cycle of the human brain in 4MAT, it can be applied in various fields such as creativity, leadership, communication, learning method, teaching method, and organizational culture consulting.
LTM (Learning Type Measure)
4MAT’s LTM Test Sheet was developed for leadership and teaching based on 4MAT®, providing a guide to the role different learning styles play in relationships and communication in all contexts. The LTM test strip is not a psychoanalytic tool. Rather, it measures preferences for different ways of approaching learning. LTM, when used in conjunction with the 4MAT, provides a clear and actionable direction applicable to all kinds of learners in all environments.
LBI (Leadership Behavior Inventory)
This diagnostic sheet presents personal strengths and points of complementation as a leader. It indicates personal preference in areas such as motivation, communication, system establishment, and recruitment that leaders need, and through this, it is easy to build an effective team through the strengths of each member.
TSI(Teaching Style Inventory)
TSI represents teaching style and preferences. By recognizing your teaching style, it helps you teach to reach more students.
SLP (Student Learning Preferences)
This questionnaire is suitable for middle school, high school, and college students, and is an excellent tool to help start a conversation about learning types. It can be used for professors and teachers, freshman orientation, parent education, etc. SLP’s diagnostic tools and outcomes increase motivation and responsibility for learning by comparing how I approach learning with the approaches of others.
We are living in an era where ‘how to deliver’ matters more than the era when ‘what to deliver’ was important. In schools and organizations that constantly need to talk and teach people and organizations, projects and products, the 4MAT pedagogy provides unparalleled insight and concrete skills into ‘how to say’. 4MAT pedagogy examines the way I speak to the public and provides a logical structure and public training that will allow my audience to progress to the instructor they want me to be.
