Steven Anderson holds a Bachelors of Science in Middle Grades Mathematics and Science Education from Western Carolina University and a Master ofArts In Education In Instructional Technology from East Carolina University. He is currently persuing an Add-On Licsenure in Administration from Appalachian State University. Steven began teaching in 2003 the Gateway Prep. Academy at the Kennedy Learning Center in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools in Winston-Salem, NC. There he worked with 7th and 8th grade students who were more than 2 years off of grade level in the hopes they could return to their regular school to be successful. He then moved to Clemmons Middle School, also in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system where he taught 7th and 8th grade Science for 5 years. He was part of a pilot program that "looped" his 7th and 8th grade students, meaning they had the same teachers for 2 years. While at Clemmons he served as Team Leader, Grade-Level Chairman, Department Chairman, School Improvement Team Member and School Improvement Team Chairman. He left Clemmons Middle to serve as the District Instructional Technologist for Stokes County Schools. There, he was responsible for all technology professional development programs in the district. In January, 2010, he returned to Clemmons Middle School as the Instructional Technologist, working with teachers and students on technology integration. Currently he is a District Instructional Technologist, working with district and school administrators on how to harness the power of technology to enhance learning.

 

He has been a presenter at several area technology conferences and meetings including NCTIES, North Carolina's largest educational technology conference, The ISTE Annual Conference, the ASCD Annual Conference and others. Most recently he was selected to be a panelist at the #140 Conference in Los Angeles, organized by Vonage founder, Jeff Pulver, where he discussed the impact of Twitter and other social media on education. As part of the conference he was one of the first recipients of the NOW Award, recognizing the "Movers and Shakers" in the world of Social Media. He returned to the #140 Conference in 2010 as a featured speaker, this time in New York City. Also in 2009 Steven was voted the Most Influential Tweeter as part of the Annual Edublog Awards and was a co-recipent of the Most Influential Series of Tweets for his part in helping to create #edchat, a weekly education discussion on Twitter that boosts over 500 weekly participants. Steven also spends time traveling the country talking to schools, teachers, administrators, parents and community members about the power of social media in the classroom. 

 

Steven began building his Personal Learning Network (PLN) in his first year of teaching by forming a support group for First Year Teachers from around the district. He continued building his PLN by networking with other professionals at conferences, workshops and meetings around the state. In the Fall of 2008 he joined the Classroom 2.0 Ning and joined Twitter in Feb. 2009 as web20classroom where he continues everyday to grow as an educator and build his PLN. He is currently working with staff at several schools on a Personal Learning Network project where teachers, administrators, and other school leaders are beginning to build their PLN's through the use of Social Networking tools.
