For whom?

Working with the World Game is bound to a license. Het World Game Practitioner training is meant for educational and health professionals who have experience in guiding, researching and/or diagnosing children and/or adults. This training entitles you to purchase the World Game and allows you to work with it.


Working with the World Game is enriching and proves time and again to be effective in non-speaking children, language problems or children with a fear of failure. Learning to understand the magic of the World Game requires a lof of experience in observation and lifelong learning. Every child is unique, therefore every World Game village is unique.

Within a few minutes gain insight into the following aspects:
The cognitive aspect (intelligence): how does the child explore their world?
The affective aspect (social/emotional): how does the child experience their world?
The pedagogical aspect (education/learning strategies): how does the child handle their world?
Giftedness: how does the child process knowledge and new information?

New aspect giftedness

With the help of Johnnie Rasmussen and Grith Tschorn (from the Gifted Institute DK) and professor Evelyn Kroesbergen (Radboud University – Nijmegen) an observation list for giftedness has been developed and is being tested.
This rubric can be used as a supplement to the non-verbal identification of cognitive abilities in situations regular IQ tests due to communication or cultural problems cannot be taken.
