RECONNECT is a proposal to create awareness of the power and mindful use of social media through the medium of an exhibition. The exhibition will take place in the Newseum in Washington, D.C., an ideal venue in which to hold an interactive exhibition that explores the relationship between social media and humans. This exhibition will take visitors on an experiential journey through three different active learning environments. People tend to learn in more practical situations, so a multi-sensory experience will increase audience engagement. This paper will explore the design challenge of getting visitors to fully experience an exhibition by giving up their phone in the middle of the exhibition.
