Nos complace anunciar que la edición en español ya está disponible para su descarga como folleto en PDF (12.3mb).

Además también próximamente habrá una versión en francés.

En esta nueva edición, esperamos divulgar en toda la comunidad hispana los beneficios a nivel educativos, de salud, así como la utilización del ajedrez en diferentes ámbitos sociales y terapéuticos.

Esperamos que sirva como carta de presentación, no solamente para los aficionados, docentes y profesores, sino también para toda la comunidad que quiera conocer los trabajos que se están llevando a cabo con el ajedrez como herramienta educativa y de socialización.

Monday, 26 February 2018 10:54
We are pleased to announce that the English language edition is now available for download: PDF booklet (12.5mb).

This is a completely new successor to Chess in Schools – Our Global Future published in 2012, with a second edition in 2014.

In this new edition, we hope to disseminate throughout the chess community the benefits of chess for education, health, as well as its use in different social and therapeutic areas.

We hope it serves as a letter of introduction, not only for amateurs, instructors and teachers, but also for the entire community that wants to know the work that is being carried out with chess as an educational and socialization tool.

bac1FIDE’s CiS Commission covers not just chess in schools, especially primary schools, but also pre-school (, secondary schools and higher education.

Also in 2017, chess was introduced as an option as part of the Baccalaureat, the French diploma that students take at the end of their secondary education and which opens the way to higher education. If you understand French, then follow the link...
