KSEN: MSU Researchers Receive Grant To Build ‘Algorithmic Awareness’ As Form Of Digital Literacy. “To help increase awareness of algorithms, the [Montana State University] Library received a $50,000 grant for ‘Unpacking the Algorithms That Shape our User Experience.’ The project includes three main parts, all with a goal of introducing “algorithmic awareness” as a form of digital literacy: researching algorithms and writing a report for users, developing a teaching tool in order to give transparency to common algorithms, and creating a curriculum and pilot class. “
