Higher Education
Samedi, 24 Février 2018 13:15
bac1FIDE’s CiS Commission covers not just chess in schools, especially primary schools, but also pre-school (, secondary schools and higher education.

The field of Higher Education gets comparatively little attention, but chess is making real progress in this area.

We think the first to adopt a programme was the Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU) in 2011. That has developed into a 4-year Bachelor’s Degree course with first intake in 2017. See our forthcoming feature.

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...

Chess in prisons in Mallorca & Menorca
Jeudi, 22 Février 2018 12:47
balearsWe have an interesting article (in Spanish) by Guillem Simo & Pep Suarez about the chess programme that began in 2008 and continues today.

The rapid tournament mentioned in the article, which was held in the Centro Penitenciario de Menorca, pitted four unrated inmates against four rated players from the federation. It was won by one of those unrated inmates!

The main aspect of the programme is to use chess as a tool to develop reflection and better to take decisions in critical moments.

Such programmes, like all uses of chess for educational purposes, came under FIDE's Chess in Schools Commission but since 2014 prison programmes are mostly developed by FIDE's Social Projects Commission.
