ILAMM®
Integrated Learning and Mentoring Methodology

ILAMM®, the integrated learning and mentoring methodology, is a proprietary learning methodology developed by Jil D Hrdliczka in 1994 specifically for learning involving information technology.

The methodology defines four aspects of the learning process for each session – how the learners learn, the way they learn, what they learn and the environment in which they learn.

The methodology was developed for a project-based goal-oriented active learning environment where learners are inspired, motivated, guided, directed and focused and where the role of the educator is more like that of a mentor or facilitator in the learning process than that of a traditional teacher. ILAMM® promotes active learning.

The learning methodology enables accelerated learning and the simultaneous development of IT skills, creativity, lateral thinking, logic, problem-solving ability, life skills, listening, concentration and memory skills, research, planning and time management.

Incidental learning, cross-application learning and cross-pollination of skills form part of the learning process. This ensures that learners are able to move between software applications quickly and easily.

The Integrated Learning and Mentoring Methodology creates a fun learning environment for both the learner and educator. Emphasis is placed on the development of self-esteem and confidence building and providing learners with the coping skills they need for each session and application. This ensures that every child can achieve whatever he or she wants to achieve in each of the sessions.

The goal-oriented, outcomes based, non-competitive, non-judgmental, multi-cultural, multilingual learning environment, created through the application of the learning methodology is the learning environment in which most learners succeed and excel.
