Editors’ Note

This is the seventh issue of the International Journal for Educational Media and Technology, a collaborative work among scholars of Japan Association for Educational Media Studies (JAEMS) and Korean Association for Educational Information and Media (KAEIM). As close friends, JAEMS and KEAIM decided to have an annual international conference titled International Conference for Media in Education (ICoME) and jointly publish an international journal in 2003 in Seoul, Korea. Since then, ICoME has been held annually in Japan and Korea alternately (In Osaka, Japan in 2004 and 2008; in Pusan, Korea in 2005 and 2007; in Tokyo, in Japan in 2006; back in Seoul, Korea in 2009 and 2011; and in Kumamoto, Japan in 2010). As a result of each of these ICoME, a volume of the International Journal for Educational Media and Technology has been published each year.

In 2012, ICoME was held in Beijing, China. This particular volume contains a revised version of concurrent session papers presented at the ICoME 2012. Calls for Paper were sent out to the authors of 13 papers that were recommended by multiple editors. Submitted papers were then reviewed by three editors from Japan, Korea and a third country. In the end, five revised papers were accepted for publication. We are honored to have an invited paper from one of the distinguished keynote speakers of the ICoME 2012: Professor Ronghuai Huang. As Co-Editors-in-Chief of this Journal, we’d like to express our sincere thanks to all of the editors who dedicated themselves to very thorough paper reviews and thus contributed to high quality journal publication.
