Below is my communication model that incorporates the 6 basic ideas evident in the models discussed in class; Shannon/Weaver, Berlo, Emmert/Donaghy, and Meredith Davis. Each of these models have these six components in common:
Source/Sender: The person initiating the dialog; starting the communication of an idea.
Message: Idea of concept sent from the Sender to the Receiver
Channel: The medium in which the message is portrayed (presentational, representational, and mechanical).
Noise: Additional information or interference added between the sender and receiver (craftsmanship, cultural & social background, and effectiveness).
Feedback: Dialog back and fourth between sender and receiver; the building of a conversation.
Receiver: Person on the opposite end receiving the message from the sender and decoding or interpreting the message.
I chose to portray my model in a playful manner, expressing the "noise" as chaotic and interfering; a detour, if you will, from the smooth straight "point A to point B" motion of the original line. I also saw that the idea of "feedback" give the model a connected, circular flow so I reflected that in my model as well.
