Something happens. The learner is focused on the topic.
Step 2: Share
We learn about the topic, reflect on it, and think about if it will work. We connect the dots.

Bernice McCarthy - Creator of 4MAT
The 4MAT Model appeals to each of these styles.
A model for training that caters to learning styles of both the trainer and student.
The 4MAT model of training looks at learning styles - of both the trainer AND the trainee - and takes them both through a four-step model that includes something for every learner.
This Prezi covers the basic learning styles, along with the four steps of the 4MAT model. For more information please visit 4MAT4business.com.
The steps in the 4MAT system take trainees through all phases of learning, from discovering something new, practicing, applying, and developing a plan to take it into the world.
All types of learners can learn through this model, and it should be a template for any complete training program.
