“The Council for Promoting a Safer Net Environment for Children,” a voluntary association in Japan, has recently developed a free web-based educational program named “MOBAMI,” targeted at teenage users of mobile phones, based on the instructional design theory. The program is an outcome of the recently introduced “Act for the Development of an Environment that Provides Safe and Secure Internet Use for Young People (Act No. 79 of 2008).” Since Japan is the most advanced 3G-networked country, MOBAMI is expected to become one of the main reference programs for new teenage smart-phone users, given its distinctive characteristics. Firstly, it considers the information behavior of teenage 3G users, including the use of multi-media applications and their potential risks for teenagers. Secondly, it is an interactive self-check program and easily accessible for children, parents, and educators. The remaining issues and the implications for other countries are also discussed in this paper.
