GEM's mission is to bring the world into the classroom. We do this through a variety of means, including our distance learning (videoconference) programs.  GEM has over 30  programs available to schools and community organizations, and is excited to expand our offerings to include programs on Saudi Arabia and the Arab world.




About Abdullah Alsultan:
Abdullah Alsultan is studying Political Science at Chestnut Hill College.  He began his internship at GEM on February 4th for the 2014 spring term.  Part of his work at GEM is to show the world an Arab perspective on education, politics, culture and the role of media in shaping our understanding.  Emphasis will be on Saudi Arabia, where he was born, raised and studied for 12 years.

Abdullah aims to show a broader perspective on how the Arab world looks at Westerners and help students better understand life in the Arab world.  Having lived in two very different cultures helped him understand that large differences between societies or governments does not mean that one  is wrong or bad. As a person who is living between two different countries, cultures and religions, it made him able to understand more the differences and similarities between people.  He believes that education is the solution to make humans understand each other better, especially when they work or play together.
