As we have already mentioned in the previous paper (1) and (2), we could appreciate the high demands of good educational training and in-service training programs as well as high quality software/hard ware (S/H) environments. In fact, the higher rate of computer indorsement at in-service school level is achieved by the great help of the S/H industry. Also the educational activities are being made by the Government, school administrators, educators as well as the people in software/hardware industry. It is true that the todays' educational programs could not be achieved without their technological innovation. Therefore, it is meaningful to survey and analyze the educational technology devotion of the S/H industry. The research results are as follows: 1. There are 85 companies in the S/H industry in Okinawa, but they are relatively small except a few. 2. The ratio of the S/H companies which develop and also sale educational software is 10 percent, and that of the companies which only sale educational software is 20 percent of the S/H industry. 3. These companies are taking care of several computer makers as well as different curriculum of different school levels. 4. The concept of "good" educational software differ between the S/H industry and the inservice teachers. 5. The S/H industry's educational and technological support seem to be relatively insufficient, due to human factor, economical factor and geographical locational factor. 6. There exist several problems which must be solved only by mutual co-operative works among the Government, school administrators, educators and the S/H industry.

The revision of curriculum pointed out the need to change from traditional art education, leading to further chaos. In concrete terms, serious problems lie in misinterpretations and a lack of consensus of objectives in art education, loss of self-confidence by teachers concerning teaching contents and methods, inappropriate ways of thinking about the ideas of evaluation and its methods. This might be fatal chaos of the subject which has been neglected. Details on this situation were discussed in my previous articles, "The Present Condition and Problems Art Education in Compulsory Education." and "An Examination of Present Problems and Issues in Art Education in Elementary School (1)."
