Diamond Chess in School”
It has been suggested by different researchers and scientists that chess involves, and possibly boosts, cognitive abilities such as working memory, fluid intelligence and concentration capacity. Besides, chess may be beneficial for mathematical ability, and more widely, academic achievement by enhancing concentration and problem-solving skills.
“We use the engaging game of chess as a vehicle to create positive attitudes towards learning.”
The confidence children gain when involved in our program is a contributing factor to their success not just in chess, but also in the social sphere, academics and sports.
Chess teaching tends to increase kid’s analytical comprehension while being interesting.
HOW THIS WORKS
Research has shown that the game “chess” – which is already part of schools curriculum in some nations around the world (including Nigeria) – can dramatically improve pupils’ levels of concentration, boost problem-solving skills and develop their thought processes.
Pupils as young as 5 should be given lessons in chess, amid claims it boosts concentration levels, numeracy and reading comprehension.
