Abstract/Description: Organizations today searching for new ways to develop a more prolific work environment often take into consideration both employee productivity and well-being. Research on work-life balance suggests that separating work from other daily activities can be beneficial for both productivity and well-being, but modern technological innovations have blurred this line between a work and social life. The shift to a 24/7 work environment has led to various studies searching for ways technology is affecting psychological health and the work environment itself. Past research suggests that cell phones impair academic performance, but effectively managing cell phone use may provide a channel for a better work-life fusion. Based on previous research, I predict that restricting the use of cell phones in classrooms may negatively affect academic performance. Additionally, this restriction may affect current mood, specifically increasing negative affect, with also increased levels of anxiety. If so, this would suggest that administrators may need to adjust their management of technology strategies in the classroom and subsequently the workplace.
