Electric is just simple on/off current flow as in the basic telegraph 
which just used a mechanical switch to close and open a circuit to 
operate an electromagnet down the line.

Electronics introduces things like amplification, filteration and other 
specialty circuits using components such as diodes, triodes, chokes, 
resistors, capacitors, semiconductors, etc.
