On Saturday, October 22, the German and Ukrainian Go Youth played an online friendship tournament.
The idea to this tournament arose after a visit of Nataliia Rusanovska, mother of two go playing children from Kiev to a German go tournament where a contact to the German Go Federation was established. Instead of a classical team match, we decided to try out a new idea: playing a McMahon tournament with relatively short, children-friendly thinking time (20 minutes + 3x20 seconds). This reduced the organisation a lot, since we did not have to worry about missing kids: the pairing for the first round was simply made on the spot.  Read more...

About 40 teachers from 15 countries gathered for the ‘Seminar on Didactics of Strategic Games’ at Cambridge University, sharing their expertise on teaching Go, chess and other games at schools. A variety of relevant topics were covered such as learning psychology, teaching methods & materials, business models of educational programs, marketing and research. For example, Prof. Barry Hymer (University of Cumbria in Lancaster) introduced new studies on learners’ mindsets, and their implications on teaching methods. Alessandro Dominici talked about his Chess teaching project and how he managed to apply successfully for ERASMUS funds. Rita Atkins addressed important issues related to accrediting chess teachers. Paul Barchilon from the American Go Foundation (AGF) presented their great work of supporting Go teachers in the US, as well as his own experiences as a very enthusiastic Go teacher and American Go Association (AGA) organiser of youth activities for years.  Read more...
