The federal education minister will use a meeting of his state and territory counterparts to convince them to ban mobile phones in schools.
Dan Tehan has welcomed Victoria's decision to introduce a phone ban in state schools from next year.
Local and international experts will attend the ministerial meeting on Friday to discuss the links between mobile phones and cyber bullying.
"We're also starting to see a causal link when it comes to social media and the impact that is having on student wellbeing," Mr Tehan told ABC radio.
"I think it would be a very positive move if states and territories followed Victoria's lead."
But ahead of the meeting, Mr Tehan is unimpressed Victoria, NSW and Queensland are launching another review of NAPLAN literacy and numeracy tests.
He argues the states should concentrate on improving results.
