In recent years, there is a lot of media literacy practice at school in Japan. But there is few support systems for teachers to design media literacy lesson plans. Teachers who try to design media literacy lesson plans have not much opportunity to interact with media literacy researcher or media creators. On this research we develop on-line learning environment-Media Teachers Village- for teachers to design Media Literacy lesson plans. This on-line learning environment enables teachers to interact with 1) media creators (advertisement creator and television producer); 2)media literacy researchers; 3)expert media teachers who developed a lot of media literacy lesson plans and practiced to design more effective media literacy lesson plans. On this web site contains 1)on-demand lectures ,Interviews, and classroom movies using streaming videos; 2)asynchronous discussions using bulletin board systems; and 3)hand out. On this research primary purpose was to demonstrate how teacher's lesson plans change and teacher's refrection process.
