FORA.tv Speaker - Steve Wright
Before coming to the Foundation, Steve Wright acquired 13 years of experience in technology and education. He was a high school administrator for two years and was a classroom teacher for seven years, beginning in the Peace Corps. In the mid-80s, while teaching in Pasadena, he became interested in the confluence of education and technology; specifically, in the role that electronic communication could play to encourage conversation between students in underserved communities and the rest of the world. He also worked in a high-tech startup that made a software-training program for people with receptive language difficulties. Mr. Wright has a Masters degree in Education.
Mr. Wright joined salesforce.com/foundation in September 2000. In his role as Program Director, he works directly with youth, technology coordinators and community organizations to ensure a productive experience in which technology is used in service of youth. Both Mr. Wirght and the Foundation believe that the most
effective use of technology in this setting is as a creative tool to publish unheard voices.
