Learn Chess App Recommendation
“For better and for worse, digital technology is now an irreversible fact of our lives,” said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake. “In a digital world, our dual challenge is how to mitigate the harms while maximizing the benefits of the internet for every child.”
This is a new thread kick-off to share the world of digital learning as we explore at our house. Digital recommendations may include good/clean TV time for kids, learning apps and similar information. This thread is not propagating media usage or an advisory board for how much media should be consumed by children - those are best answered by your pediatricians or your specific situation.
At our house we allow media consumption in moderation - we call it "Triple M" - Monitored Media Minutes - we moderate time and content access, and its restricted enough, yet allowed to take the vantage points of the digital age and keeping a level of exposure just like all other learning concepts. .
This week we have been trying a few different apps for learning Chess for my 5 year old daughter. She has learnt a few basics from us, but we do not have the know-how on how to teach it step by step or how we take this forward. I have explored some classes but they are very expensive where I am located, and its not my requisite yet. So to further her interest in Chess we explored some apps which may help. The one that we really liked is called ChessKid.com - this has lessons and then simple game play at a beginner level. The app follows a step by step curated Chess Curriculum with lesson plans. Its great for beginners with absolutely no prior knowledge.
I recommend trying it this app if your child has early interests in Chess.
