Why and How to Rethink Classroom Design?

Mélissa Philippe Project Manager, PEEC

Nowadays, thanks to technology, learners are connected to content from beyond any physical space. Learning on line, flipped classrooms and technology-based learning strategies are many relatively new trends. These trends allow learners the liberty to learn at their own rhythm and provide access to interactive media that enhance and diversify teaching strategies. On the other hand digital learning requires we rethink the traditional classroom design.

4Mat, a Teaching Strategy Compatible with the Brain

Mélissa Philippe Project Manager, PEEC

You have probably heard about the Universal Design of Learning (UDL). It supposes that the human brain functions roughly the same way from one person to another, but that each person learns differently. This model therefore suggests to vary and differ pedagogical strategies in order to reach all types of learners.

In this article, I will present a model to you that is seemingly similar, that I was able to experiment with in the context of developing professional competencies. It is the model 4Mat (Four Matters), developed 30 years ago, and that aims at offering learning activities and a pedagogical sequence that takes the 4 main learning styles into account. The model 4Mat, as with UDL, can be applied to all learners, regardless of their age, because it is established from neuroscientific studies that define the role of each area of the brain in the process of learning.
