The Federal Government is pushing the states to introduce blanket mobile phone bans in schools with evidence the technology is affecting the ability of students to learn. Victoria has already announced a ban and Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan wants others to follow suit.

Every morning at MacKinnon Secondary College in Melbourne's south-east, students put their mobile phones on silent and place them in their lockers.

And as Year 12 student Adam Alfawwal explains, the devices aren't retrieved until the end of the school day.

The classroom ban has been in place for more than eighteen months and according to year 11 student Phoebe Lock, it's had a positive impact.

Victoria has announced a statewide ban starting next year and Federal Government Education Minister Dan Tehan wants other states to do the same.
