Process 

Eshcolot’s learning process is simple, yet extremely powerful. The process begins with children 
engaging in game-playing, which ultimately empowers them with skills and knowledge relevant
to real-life situations. The Eshcolot Method is the bridge that connects the World of Games with the Real World The educational process consists of 3 powerful and research-proven stages
 

Stage 1: Engage

In the first stage, the children learn one of the many strategy games in the program, and then go on  to play in small groups. The facilitator provides them with a game kit and explains the game
 strategies and underlying thinking concepts,
which help the children, develop their game-playing  skills
 

Stage 2: Learn

In the second stage, the facilitator and the children summarize the game-playing session with the  help of a thinking model. This model relates to cognitive processes triggered by game-playing  (for example, identifying and dealing with a problem, or having to make a difficult
decision), or to  emotional or social processes (for example, recognizing having made a mistake or the need to  cooperate as part of a group). Below are few examples of cognitive, emotional and social skills  strengthened by the Eshcolot Method:

 

 

Stage 3: Transfer

In the third stage, the facilitator and children examine the game patterns and then initiate a discussion,  which relates to relevant real-life situations. In so doing, the pupils succeed in applying the knowledge  derived from the game experience to other aspects of life – from their studies (and later on, their  occupation) to their emotional and spiritual life, as well as social and familial relationships.
