As John Shinder (2009) says “The power of [competition’s] effect makes its use very tempting. Little else gets a group of young people more energized than competition"
Here at Education Perfect we see competition as a chance for students to extend themselves, work together towards common goals and as a means to extend student knowledge. As Tom Verhoeff (1997) explains education and competition are two universal ingredients in human life and the way that children are naturally inclined to compete means the availability of good competitions becomes beneficial for education in almost any discipline.
