Editors’ Note

This is the fifth issue of International Journal for Educational Media and Technology, as a collaborative work among scholars of Japan Association for Educational Media Studies (JAEMS) and Korean Association for Educational Information and Media (KAEIM). As a pair of close friends, JAEMS and KEAIM started official exchanges of having annual international conferences, International Conference for Media in Education (ICoME) in 2003 in Seoul. It was during our meetings that an idea of jointly publishing an international journal was proposed and the decision was made to do so. ICoME was continued in Osaka in 2004 and 2008, in Pusan in 2005 and 2007, and in Tokyo in 2006, back in Seoul in 2009, and in Kumamoto in 2010.

This volume contains a revised version of concurrent session papers at ICoME 2010, which were recommended by multiple members of the board of editors. Calls for Paper were announced for the authors of recommended papers, by invitations only, and thirteen of 17 recommended papers were submitted for this volume. Three editors, including one from the third country, reviewed each of the submissions, and further revised versions of the papers were accepted for this publication. We are honored to have two invited papers in this issue from the distinguished invited speakers of ICoME 2010: Professors Chen Li and John Keller. As Co-Editors-in-Chief of this Journal, we thank all of the editors who dedicated themselves in recommendation and reviewing process in making this issue of high quality by their insightful suggestions.
