This study aimed to investigate the learning process of an outstanding teenager chess player in Taiwan. In addition to exploring the growth of chess skills, the focus of this study also examined whether the mind-sets (activeness, objectiveness etc) and thoughts (over opinions, observation, perspectives etc.) of this player have been altered in the daily life. By interviewing significant others such as himself, chess teachers, family member and other supports including chessmates and peers, researcher adopted a grounded orientation so as to gradually establish concepts and categories as well as collect and analyze data. Based on the previous analyses, interview questions were revised and used to garner further information. This cycle is repeated until the data are full in order to construct theoretical framework. Research findings are reached as follows: 1.Learning chess facilitates the capacity enhancement By interviewing player himself, player's mother and chess teacher, it is found that player has increased his ability and changed his way of getting along with people and interpersonal relationship after learning Chinese chess. 2. Lack of opportunities access to higher school and professional career system. Though extra points can be earned by learning Chinese chess for access to higher school, the scope is limited and not applied to every district. There is no domestic professional system providing a sound environment. Therefore, some players were forced to give up playing chess even they performed very well at the schooling period. 3. Lacking of opportunities to learn chess According to researchers, chess teacher and participant, there are a few channels to learn chess including home teaching by seniors, school club, chess classroom, the Internet, observation learning and self study by manual. Not every student can learn chess through one of the above channels. Particularly students are heavily influenced by the peers and cannot devote themselves to learning chess diligently. It is difficult to undertake joint learning unless having a counterpart. Students are further constrained by external environment and quite unstable in learning chess. 4. Lack of chessmate to play with Though it is common to see chess facilities at primary school classroom, students are not willing to use. Some classes even prohibit to set up the facilities and students are not allow to play off class making this activity small scale. Under this circumstance, it is not easy to find a chessmate to play with. 5. Family support helps develop the chess skills Participant was luckily raised up by a family where respects and supports his choice. He was enlightened by his father, educated by chess teachers, act as a candidate for national player and has the opportunities to consider whether he should move on or not. Family is the starting point of learning and a place where to determine whether is able to locate child's gift, treat child's hobby positively, embrace the development of child and provide a supportive environment. These attitudes are very important to every child by reducing the miscommunication with family member, eradicating family suspicion and fully exercise child's potential gift. Finally based on research findings, researchers summarized relevant suggestions for educational authorities and schools. They are required to pay their attention to the real needs of gifted students. Recommendations were also made to parents in order to appreciate children from diverse perspectives. Suggestions for future research are also provided.
