Welcome to the Assistive Technology & Universal Design for Learning Loan Library
We believe in the power of technology to help all students achieve high academic standards! As a part of the Florida's MTSS Projects, the online resource library is designed to help districts and schools implement a universal, differentiated core curriculum based on the Florida B.E.S.T. Standards. The assistive technologies available in this library can be used to identify which technologies will best support students with disabilities to participate and progress in this core curriculum. The Universal Design for Learning technologies can be used to identify effective, instructional pedagogies that support highly effective learning environments. Accounts are only available to individuals approved by the district ESE Directors and staff members of BESE Discretionary Projects.
The 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person to person. COVID-19 is being closely monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Please visit the CDC’s web page at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html for current information concerning COVID-19. The CDC reported that transmission is also possible through contact with hard surfaces. As this affects all of our patrons who use the AT&UDL Loan Library, we will do everything we can to continue supporting the needs of our patrons and students who use these assistive tools.
