t-extend is used to extend an existing template

You will see qweb templates in the base module like:

<t t-name="layout">

You can use <t t-extend="module_name.layout" > to extend these and insert new qweb elements.

<t t-jquery> is used to specify a postion.

For example,

<t t-name="layout">
<span class="some_class">Hello</span>

You could extend this by using:

<t t-jquery="span.some_class" t-operation="after">

t-jquery is usually used in conjuction with t-operation much like <xpath expr="" position="" /> 

Hope this helps.

If you browse through some modules, you should get the hang of it. Let me know if you need more help.
