Gaining experience, and getting an idea

Over Easter I played chess at the Neckar-Open in Deizisau, the world's second largest chess tournament sporting 654 participants this year. Although I can't say that I was a great point huntress, I still gained a lot of experience. One idea that came to me as I indulged in chess was what kind of pedagogical strategies would be appropriate for training chess. I am actually considering to take chess as the area of application in which to try a new theory of classifying pedagogic methods. I have yet to check whether that would be a good idea or not, but having the idea is a start!
