Keeping up with these ever changing terms can be a challenge – these resources will help!

With the ever-evolving nature of education technology, it can be helpful to have some resources to tap into to learn the meaning of a word or phrase you haven't come across before.

With this in mind, I scoured the web for resources.  While there is no shortage of education terminology resources, there were few good edtech terminology resources I found (on the other hand, there was a surprising number of links that led to dead ends).

Here are the best resources I found thus far. If anyone is aware of any similar resources, I certainly hope you'll share them in a comment. Thanks!

The Education Technology Dictionary from EdShelf

This is the most straightforward reference I came across – a good old fashioned list:

.

Encyclopedia of Terminology for Educational Communications and Technology

This is a Google Book, and it is a very rich resource:

The “EdTech Cheat Sheet” from Boundless

Here we have a visual resource:

The Teacher's Guide to Tech: A User-Friendly Encyclopedia of Educational Technology

This is a rather in depth resource, as opposed to a quick look-up tool:

Glossary of Online Learning Terms

While not a purely “edtech”, since online learning is digital learning, there are many useful and relevant terms here:
