Sint-Truiden, belgium Joris Brans and Jan Mertens, two sportleerkrachten for the classes LO in the elementary school, have put together an app devised to assist young people to move. That is called ‘SAM’: Active Together with Media. On the basis of custom video each student at their own level to get started.

“It was about time that SAM on the came up,” says Truienaar George Brans, which sportleerkracht is in primary school The Sunflower in Wilderen. “Research by the Inspectorate shows that most of the schools in large extent to meet the minimumverwachtingen for the body and bewegingsbeheersing, but that more attention may be for variety in the bewegingsaanbod and the use of multimedia such as apps and images. Therefore, thought, Jan and I, SAM, a digital tool for teachers in the primary education for qualitative bewegingslessen. To do this, use is made of more than 70 movies to students at their own level to make them move and learn. Fun for the students is that in the voorbeeldfilmpjes peers the exercises. This increases the recognizability and challenges them to give it to. All of the exercises are not only at school but also at home to perform.”

Free

Jan Mertens from Zoutleeuw is co-creator of the app. He teaches in public school The Source in Budingen and municipal elementary school in The Nod in Rummen. “Even those who at first sight didn't like sport, is now more excited to start it," says Mertens. The SAM app is free to download, both for Android and iOS users. This allows kids at home to further participate in the battle. The SAM app is not a commercial product. It is made from ideology to two worlds to connect with each other: the tablet and children more and better move.”
