Abstract

The study aims to investigate the impact of smart phones addiction on academic performance of college students. For the purpose, we have used “Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB)” in investigating the academic performance. Moreover, the study also emphasized that whether smart phone self-efficacy, interaction competency and behavioral intention influences the academic performance of college students in positive way and negative way using that TPB model, data are collected from the students of Iqra University north campus using quantitative research. In this research we have used correlation design because we have studied relationship between Smartphone self-efficacy (SSE), interaction competency (IC), behavioral intention (BI) and Academic performance (AA). This design tells us how much independent variables (SSE, IC and BI) impact on dependent variable (AA). From the finding we came to know that there is a positive relationship between behavioral intention and academic performance. This proves that until and unless students are not intrinsically motivated, they cannot use smart phone in a positive way…… The limitation of the study is; the study is carried out by the students of university due to limited time period. Moreover, time constrains also act as a barrier in collecting many responses. Hence, the sample size might not be appropriate to increase the generalizability of this paper. Therefore, the study can’t apply on other regions. Furthermore, more variables should be taken into consideration to examine the overall Smartphone impact in a holistic way.
