When you’re talking computers, it’s important to know the language. If I were to say to you “Hey, check the toolbar and click on the icon that refreshes the page,” most of you would know what I was talking about. What about “The computer defaults to mute.” Some of you would understand what I mean, but not everyone would. So it’s time to get on the same page. Sharpen your knowledge so casual computer chat doesn’t leave you looking like confused-face emoji.
The following are computer terms and instructions that you will encounter soon if you haven’t already.

In a Google Doc, please copy this list (you can copy and paste if you want to) and fill in the definitions of each term. I will add to this list over time. These are things you need to know if you want to be smug sunglasses-emoji. Your definitions do not have to be in complete sentences as long as I know from reading the definition that you understand the term.
