Distance Learning

Throughout most of GEM's history there has been the use of modern communication technology to help students get a better understanding of their interdependent world. Recent advances in videoconferencing have taken GEM programming to a new level.

GEM provides IP videoconferencing applications. Though GEM offers packaged videoconferencing programs, most of the programming done in schools is customized through brainstorming with teachers to fit the individual classroom situation.
