GEM is an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) in association with the United Nations Department of Public Information.  GEM was one of the first educational organizations to focus on developing global education programs for both schools and the local community. GEM was founded by educators and is directed today by educators, servicing schools and communities throughout the United States and abroad. Click here to go to their website.

Vanderbilt University Virtual School developed videoconferencing programs for the purpose of integrating technology and learning. Working with K-12, universities, the community and educators, this virtual school connected students and teachers to experts in the field and facilitates collaborative leaning by connecting schools on various curriculum topics.
Vanderbilt Virtual School ceased operations in the spring of 2013. Patsy and the rest of the crew are greatly missed by CITVC.

Connect2Texas is a network of Texas-based educational content providers including museums, cultural, historical, and scientific organizations, and authors.  These providers utilize interactive videoconferencing to connect to schools and deliver live educational programs and professional development to school children and educators around Texas and across the country.
Liberty Science Center offers a wonderful program called Live From Surgery. Students can attend a session in-house at the Liberty Science Center, or view the surgery via videoconference. Students interact live, in real time, with the OR doctors, nurses, and technicians working in area hospitals during a surgery and students can gain knowledge of surgical procedures, anatomy, health issues, and careers in technology and health care.
"The International Spy Museum, a museum exploring the craft, practice, history, and contemporary role of espionage, opened in Washington, DC on July 19, 2002. The International Spy Museum is the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession that has shaped history and continues to have a significant impact on world events."
