Inclusion Through Sports, 2017

Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in News

INSTRUCTOR ALBERT FRANCIS REGINALD T. RAMOS (Dept. of Human Kinetics) was in Nairobi, Republic of Kenya on 4-11 July 2017 for the Inclusion Through Sports (ITS) training program. Upon his return, he presented Chancellor Sylvia Concepcion with the ITS handbook. (See the photo here)

ITS is organized by the Italian non-government organization Mine Vaganti for sports coaches and youth workers. ITS uses sport as a form of non-formal education to improve skills and competencies of young people and to enhance their social inclusion.

A number of simple games--called "methodologies"--have been devised for these objectives. Mr. Ramos helped create the methodology "Tic-Tac-Shuttle"--similar to the game of tic-tac-toe but played in an open space. Another methodology he co-created is "Pac-man", wherein players move along lines on the ground--similar to the "Pac-man" computer game--to change direction with every encounter, which promotes strategic thinking and a sense of fun.

ITS methodologies are being adopted in Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Kenya, Cameroon, Senegal, Guatemala, Peru, Argentina, China/Hong Kong, India, and the Philippines.

Mr. Ramos' participation in ITS 2017 is a continuation of his involvement in the July 2016 ITS training in Senegal. He will join the delegation in the presentation of the ITS to co-funders, the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, in Sofia, Bulgaria on September 28-30.
