We have focused on creating 90-second multimedia stories on the theme "Motttainai" in Susono's Educational Technology classes for future teachers. More and more people in Japan are interested in this Japanese word "Mottainai" (which captures the spirit of making full use of resources). The college students were able to learn a lot of things concerning "Mottainai" by creating stories and showing them to the classmates. Creating "Mottainai" stories led to learning about Sustainable Development.
