Product Design

“How might we help Canadian adolescents (15-19) develop better social awareness during face-to-face interactions to avoid the sense of exclusion caused by pervasive phone behaviour “Phubbing”?Phubbing - A pervasive phone behaviour commonly seen in our society today among different age groups, it describes one ignoring their companions at a social situation in order to attend to one's phone. The behaviour has caused individuals to feel excluded and devalued, as well as decreasing satisfaction felt in different interpersonal interactions (Family, Friends, Romantic Relationships, Corporate Relationships).My project ReConnect aims to raise awareness on the pervasive phone behaviour (Phubbing) among Canadian adolescents (15 -19), and provide them with necessary tools to discuss the issue with their peers to encourage quality interactions.”
