This innovative project is being updated periodically and, currently, gamification methodology, learning landscapes and the work of cognitive skills are being incorporated through manipulative workshops to facilitate the implementation of educational chess in schools.
That is, the same didactic approach applied in the current creative pre-chess project is used, which is now fully available for implementation in the children’s stage.
Therefore, three books of the teaching staff are offered, one for each cycle of the stage, with all the activities for each of the units of each course. Likewise, the six books of the Play and Learn collection (self-assessment and portfolio material) are being restructured and expanded to incorporate more exercises and challenges corresponding to the new types of activities designed for this new project Play and Learn.
All the resources necessary to carry out the multilevel activities of the students are found in the complementary materials: Stories on chess (comics), Tocada Movida (songs), Active Mind (dossiers on cognitive abilities), sheets for the workshops (PDF downloadable) and Research (dossiers on various chess challenges).
Optionally, other contents may be worked on more specifically from the resources exposed in the books of the educational Chess collections, educational chess resources and the Sent and Aplica dossiers.
