Abstract

© Facultat de Psicologia, Ciències de l'Educació i de l'Esport Blanquerna Universitat Ramon Llull. This paper studies the relationship between primary education students' leisure use of television and video games and the students' tendency to procrastinate. Information was gathered from the parents of 670 students. The results showed that male students experienced greater changes in procrastination as a function of television time than female students. In terms of video games, girls who spend “little” time or a “regular” amount of time (less than 330 minutes a week) playing video games are the least likely to procrastinate. The variable of gender plays an interesting role in procrastination.
