This is a reprint from a 2014 article -- as educators, should we be concerned?

Years ago there was a programmed learning system used by CETA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comprehensive_Employment_and_Training_Act) -- while it was not computer-based, it was supposed to limit the need for teachers.

From the About page:

About
Welcome to 23 Framework Things, an exploration of the Association of College & Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. This academic librarian-focused, self-paced program encourages participants to read, reflect, and respond to prompts and big questions surrounding the implementation of the Framework at their institutions.

Rationale
In response to the call for more support and resources surrounding the Framework, we, the current and former chairs of the Instruction Round Table of the Minnesota Library Association, decided to make 2017 the year we focus on the Framework. Through this program and the workshop and conference session that preceded it, we are engaging academic librarians in learning more about the Framework and putting it into practice at their institutions.

Participants

ALL are welcome to participate in 23 Framework Things, including those across the United States and internationally. Please view the How to Participate (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. page and fill out the Registration Form (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to participate.

Things
Each Thing is essentially a prompt to get you to think about one aspect of the Framework. Things were released in waves. Each month from May 2017 to August 2017, a new wave of Things was released with Things from different tracks.

Tracks
The 23 Things are split into four tracks that loosely surround a theme, specifically: Pedagogy, Frame Focus, Assessment, and @ Your Institution.

Timeline
Though the 23 Framework Things site will stay active for years (barring catastrophe and whatnot), progress tracking, site management, and prize eligibility will end on August 31, 2018. Those who complete all 23 Things by this date will receive a certificate of completion.

Interesting new approach to AI (and a fun game to boot)!

This is a blog post from the ACRL blog from a couple of months ago. It looks at the debates around the "excessive use" of digital resources in libraries. There is a lot of ambiguous territory to navigate when it comes to deciding how to implement the excessive use policies involved in licensing agreements, and because of the strange limbo that librarians live in--with one foot in the analog world of print-publishing and one in digital publishing--it is difficult to make fair decisions about what constitutes excessive use and create comprehensive policies. The post closes with a look at the case of Aaron Swartz and resonates with a lot of the issues we have been talking about the last few weeks. #WSN #WSN4
