Florida's Multi Tiered System of Supports


Exploring Technology & Learning Connections

Join us in exploring a world of technology & learning connections that can help all students excel! Our goal is to help all schools and teachers to develop a universal, differentiated core curriculum based on the Florida Standards in a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS). Every school is different, and how you use these technology tools depends on your local needs. Hopefully the resources here will help you realize that there are so many possibilities. This is a wonderful time to be in education!

We are the Technology & Learning Connections Team, a part of the Problem Solving/RtI Project at the University of South Florida. Below are some links to online MTSS resources, followed by a few of our resources.
