The first SLAMIT course intends to contribute to escalating and accelerating the establishment and development of learning centres in the primary and secondary schools. The learning centres are important catalysts for promoting the introduction of new learning styles and methods and for the use of ICT in schools.

Key elements will be:

• To inform participants about new learning styles and methods – e.g. multiple intelligences, learning styles, learning strategies, ICT learning, e-learning
• To demonstrate through evidence of best practice how to integrate information literacy within daily education practice
• To advocate the development of school libraries throughout European countries.
• To encourage the integration of school library programmes into the instructional and curriculum development of the school.
• To promote the professional and continuing education of school library personnel.
• To foster a sense of community among school librarians in all parts of Europe
• To promote the publication and dissemination of information about the SLAM and GrandSLAM projects
• To share information about programmes and materials for children and youth

The course will take place at the Gymnazium Dr Aleše Hrdlicky and Hotel Kotyca, Humpolec. The course will start evening the 21st at Hotel Kotyca. We recommend the participants to arrive Prague airport afternoon the 21st. We will arrange a pick up place at the airport and in the centre of Prague for participants who arrive early and want to visit the town.
