Review by Fernando Moreno

Few of them had programs that focus on using chess to develop “emotional intelligence” and what others call “soft” skills. In this VI Congress titled: “Values and Emotions on Chess in Education,” organized recently by AjEdu-DIM, all of the projects focused mainly on developing students’ socio-emotional skills using chess as their main tool.

The principal goal of the VI Congress was to provide innovative methodologies and resources to promote values and educate emotions through educational chess, using gamification and transversality.
