As the project draws to a close, the findings were shared at the European Conference on Information Literacy. The conference took place in Tallinn, Estonia, in the period 19-23 October. In the session on digital literacy Geoff Walton of Northumbria University presented the paper titled Digital Literacy for School Teachers: A Participatory Approach, jointly authored by himself, Janet Hetherington of Staffordshire University and Mark Childs of Coventry University.
During the fourth AMORES partner meeting which took place mid-September in Köping, Sweden, the AMORES project was featured on Swedish TV - or, more specifically, the local news broadcast on Västmanlands Television. The crew visited Karlbergsskolan and filmed the meeting, as well as a class participating in the project and the school library. They interviewed the principal and head of the Swedish team on the project, Ragnar Larsson, the project coordinator, Gordana Jugo, and the researchers Dr Mark Childs and Dr Geoff Walton.
