Education in Japan has changed due to globalization and the rapid development of information and communications technologies (ICT). As a result, international exchange studies give more attention to teaching about intercultural understanding. In this situation, students in Japan and in foreign countries may have opportunities to use ICT to communicate with each other. However, to carry out these practices, technical set up and preparation is needed. It is necessary to support teachers who are in charge of these activities.
In this case study, we attempted to clarify the role of technical support personnel for teachers involved in the International Exchange Study between Japan and Cambodia.
