What the Tech? Technology Definitions for Kids!

     In my class, we do a couple of projects where we define and discuss various technology terms.  My students will research the definitions of various Computer Hardware Vocabulary, Internet Safety Vocabulary and Internet Browsing Vocabulary Terms.  One of the struggles for me has been finding websites that have definitions for technology terms that are easier for 6th Grade or Elementary Students to understand.  Below are a couple of sites we are using now, and  I also posted a couple of more sites for younger and older students.  Do you have any great suggestions for Technology Dictionaries?

TechDictionary has many technology definitions and a button to submit technology terms for future updates.  If you can get past the falling snow on the screen and a few of the ads, it has some good definitions for students studying Technology Vocabulary.  You can even embed a search box on your website, Moodle Site, or your blog!

  TechTerms has some very kid friendly defintions.  Many of the definitions will have examples or scenarios that help explain the technology term.  They even search terms by the keyword, or browse through categories on the left hand side of the page. 


I want to like NetLingo.  The definitions are good and easy to find.  However, they do have "definitions" of Internet Jargon and Slang so kids can look up what WTF means in class.  Sure the words are blanked out, but I am afraid some students may be more interested in what IYSS stands for than their assigned terms.

TekMom's Buzzwords

This site is good for younger elementary students.  This site is very simple.  The words are listed in alphabetical order and are very easy to find and define. 

If all else fails, you can always resort to some of the tried and true originals.
