We would like to introduce a unique development from Chess4Kids chess school in Switzerland.
Roberto Schenker and his team recently developed the innovative MINIMASTER Program for children aged 2-5 years.
Chess4Kids integrated chess as one element out of many that supports the children on their way to explore their inner and outer world. The program contains two levels (Prelevel1: 2-3 and Prelevel2: 4-5 years), and includes a huge variety of behavioral and interest based activities.
The complete guide of the program can be found on the Chess4Kids website.
Luis Blasco De La Cruz, the chairman of the Madrid Chess Academy hosted the biggest scholastic chess conference in Madrid. The event was held between 23-25 June, 2017. In spite of the extremely hot weather, more than 100 participants joined the conference. The participants included recognized lecturers such as Pep Suarez (Spanish Chess Federation), Kevin O’Connell (FIDE Scholastic Chess), Martin Huba (ECU), Alessandro Dominici (Castle Project), and Janos Pallagi (LearningChess).
As a chess trainer I tried to use many programs and web sites to find most suitable tool to teach children chess in chess club, chess academy or chess group in leisure center. There are children and students with really varied levels of chess knowledge. They have also different approach to study. They love chess, but they don’t like memorizing and more, they are kids, they want to play.
Strategy games such as chess, go, draughts, backgammon and bridge have traditionally been associated with higher thinking skills. Children who play these games benefit from improved concentration levels and problem solving. The problem for many teachers and parents is that they do not possess the game knowledge or confidence to be able to teach their children, but the professionals from ChessPlus have the solution.
LearningChess presented its new Central- and Learning Management solution in the international conference entitled “Theoretical and Practical Issues of Chess Education in Schools”, which was held on the 1st and 2nd of October, in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia.
During the two-day conference, psychologists, sociologists, methodologists and chess trainers offered their reports that were introduced in accordance with the main topic sections of the conference listed below:
Chess Education and Personality Development
Socio-psychological issues of Chess Education
Chess Teachers’ Training and Professional Development
Technological and Methodological Aspects of Chess Education
Chess and Inclusive Education Practices
We are excited to announce that the Madrid Chess Academy and LearningChess have signed a cooperation agreement. The aim of the cooperation is to make the LearningChess online chess education system available to students and chess fans in their native language in Spain, Mexico, and Latin America.
