A bound control on a form is connected to a set of data from your database.  Each time you move to a different record in the database, the control (for example a textbox) will be updated to show the data in the new record.

An unbound control (or form) is not connected directly to data from your database.  You must change the contents of the control programatically.

Another way of looking at this is, if you change data in a field that is bound you are changing the data in the actual underlying table, but if it isnt bound, you aint changing (Edited by Computer101).
