President Barack Obama is urging all students to learn the basics of how to use technology in school.
Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, the President also called for students to “use their talents” to help students become more self-sufficient.
The President made the remarks at a TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New York City.
The TechCrunch conference is an annual event that provides a forum for tech industry executives to meet and discuss issues in technology.
The event has been held in the same building since 2014.
It attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and is the biggest technology conference in the world.
TechCrunch Disruption organizers say they hope the conference will attract more tech entrepreneurs, educators, journalists and students to attend.
The event is held on a campus in Brooklyn, New York.
