Abstract: This poster presents results from a workshop, Active Citizenship through Technology, with eighteen college freshmen. Participants collaboratively designed a virtual college campus by researching information online, interviewing faculty and administrators, using graphics programs, and designing a campus with our software Zora. Zora, an Identity Construction Environment, was purposefully created to encourage participants to explore issues of identity, decision-making, and personal values. Results showed that participants engaged in meaningful deliberation about issues related to college life.
