Why not? If it is to raise the pupils' attention spans and other skills it should be welcomed. It is a way away from the stupid rote-learning.

Just don't say it is a Chinese tradition. Abacuses were known to ancient peoples elsewhere too but the abacus disappeared there much sooner than it did in China.

No, you didn't, but since it is an old contraption that was in use al over China not that many years ago someone else might. Abacuses were invented in Babylon or Egypt, and perhaps in CHina too, and they were used for a couple of thousand years. Amaing that the first thing I saw in China was an abacus at a Bank of China office just over the border from Russia when I had just stepped of the train.
