School Chess for Integration and Inclusion

Saturday 5th December 2015  16.30 – 18.00

School chess is not any more only about promoting cognitive skills and academic achievement but is increasingly oriented towards social goals. Chess can be an excellent way to integrate children with migrant background or other disadvantages. Teaching chess to entire classes requires an inclusive approach also doing justice to weaker learners. Meet some of the champions of Integration and inclusion with chess. This session is also meant to connect schools and researchers interested in a joint application for Erasmus Plus funding.
