"I just don't understand the technical terms," someone said the other day.
There are various places you could turn to for help:
- Someone that knows who happens to be right there at the time! Ask us in the Internet Room, if you are there…
- The ict4lt.org site (that's Information and Communications Technology for Language Teachers) has a good glossary (as well as lots of other interesting links under "resources")
- Webopedia, which describes itself as an "online dictionary and search engine for computer and Internet technology definitions"
- Google-is-Evil (or some other search engine). On G-is-E, try adding "define" to your search [example]
The above are in approximate order of preference, note. First a person, not technology at all, with a specialist site (possibly one you have bookmarked) before a search engine.
