ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to verify the mediating effect of activity participation satisfaction and autonomy support in the influence of teamwork on smartphone dependence in adolescents. To achieve the aim of this study, cross-sectional analyses such as correlation analysis and regression analysis were conducted using the data of 5,197 middle school students from the Korean Children and Youth Panel Survey 2018 provided by the National Youth Policy Institute. Analyses results were as follows: First, it was found that teamwork has a negative effect on smartphone dependence and that smartphone dependence decreases more with teamwork increase in male than female adolescents. Second, it was found that activity participation satisfaction teamwork mediates the negative effect of teamwork on smartphone dependence. Third, it was found that autonomy support mediates the negative effect of teamwork on smartphone dependence. Fourth, it was found that the multiple mediating effects of activity participation satisfaction and autonomy support are statistically significant. These findings suggest that it is necessary to strengthen offline group activity programs because adolescents’ smartphone dependence can be reduced when teamwork program, satisfaction after participating in various activities, and autonomy support are reinforced offline.
