CGS Project

Summary of the Project

The project reference point will be a high-level online platform capable of supporting teachers’ training, also remotely and easily, for teachers who have been the trainers of their colleagues. This platform will contain teaching protocols that can be used in all the languages of the project, as well as an area of gambling and learning for pupils of third, fourth and fifth grades of primary school; it will also have a dedicated space on training for teachers, videos of classroom activities, publications of research into the effects of chess in schools, the ability to trace the activities carried out by teachers, and a protocol for the assessment of the skills acquired by teachers.

After the trial, recognition of the “Chess: a game to be spread in schools” teaching and training model will be requested from the European Union through the ECU. This will serve as a stimulus for teachers from all Member States who, by applying the model, can be supported by a formal international recognition, which can be useful for them both professionally and in relation to their school.
