The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University has been using digital media and computer technology to "democratize history" since 1994. On the site, readers will find three broad categories: Teaching + Learning, Research + Tools, and Collecting + Exhibiting. While each section is packed with fascinating tidbits, the Teaching + Learning category will be especially interesting to educators searching for ways to incorporate digital resources, tools, and strategies into their history lesson plans. For instance, Sea of Liberty is an interactive online tool for exploring the life and ideas of Thomas Jefferson, while 100 Leaders is a site that invites students to "think about different qualities of leadership in a meaningful way and explore the legacy of significant leaders." Other topics include explorations of professional development for teachers, women in world history, and the year 1989 as a pivotal point in history.
