A presentation by Lisa Fischer, Director of the Digital History Center of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. How does a museum dedicated to understanding and interpreting eighteenth-century history engage new audiences in the twenty-first century? Come hear about the use of digital technologies at Colonial Williamsburg and several exciting projects providing new ways to learn about and study the past. From the development of a brand new website on the American Revolution to the ongoing initiative to build in an interactive 3D computer model of the town, the use of digital technologies is being used to bring together current research in new interactive web environments helping to extend the onsite visit to online.
