Abstract: This paper is an analysis of Web 2.0 resources that complement an educational strategy called Response to Intervention (RTI). RTI is an innovative approach to remediate students with learning difficulties before referral to special education placement. Emanating from special education legislation, educational reforms, best practice, and common sense, RTI is now a mandated practice in many states. Technology plays a major role in helping students who are at risk for failure due to LD, ADD, autism and ELL. The use of Web 2.0 and interactive online activities are explored to assist teachers and interventionists to create inclusive learning environments that complement RTI. Examples of online resources that exploit the power of Web 2.0 tools are illustrated.
