This collection of dossiers allows you to work playfully on various cognitive abilities such as, for example, perception, reasoning, spatial vision… from very elementary concepts of the game of chess.
They can be used as complementary materials in the projects: Play and learn and Chess for everybody.
These materials are the result of applying game-based learning (JBA), as explained in the book Gamification in Chess, to problem solving and chess challenges.
The chess problems and challenges are based on those shown in the Chess Gallery of the previous book (unit 5). On the other hand, chess positions are based on solving and /or assessing typical chess positions in a chess game.
This collection is organized in these three previous themes, to which more than one dossier can be dedicated depending on the level of difficulty and / or the type of approach (stimulation of students, therapeutic use, cognitive workshops in the elderly …).
The innovative methodology used and the sheets of the annexed batches allow these dossiers to be worked on manipulatively through workshops in the classroom. They also allow to treat the diversity of the students and facilitate their evaluation.
