The Social Technology Enabled Professional (STEP) was created by Education Development Center (EDC) and a panel of social technology experts in a project funded by the National Science Foundation. These experts defined a Social Technology Enabled Professional as someone who “builds, maintains, manages, and leverages online social networks to engage with customers, business partners, employees, and key influencers with the goal of building organizational success.”

The STEP resources can be adapted for ABE practitioners and programs who are getting started with using social media. The STEP materials also include scenarios and classroom lesson materials.
