Mode / Content / Meaning = Technology / Text / Literacy

At the great risk of oversimplifying everything we’ve learned, I am taking away from this course the idea that:

Technology = Mode/Medium

Text = Content

Literacy = Ability or process of creating meaning from the technology/text (or mode/content)

I tried to make a little graphic to illustrate this, but they all ended up too linear and/or inflexible (should content go inside the mode? are mode and content equal partners added together, with meaning overarching? or should meaning be at the end of an arrow? ) so I gave up. A boxes and arrows graphic is obviously not the most apt mode for this content and the meaning I’ve created for it. Maybe a song?
