Virtual Chromebook SIG Survey
I am starting a virtual Special Interest Group (SIG) for those interested in learning about or using Chromebooks. Chromebooks use the Chromebook OS by Google and work primarily in the cloud. It will be available to all user groups and their members.

[Info about Chromebooks]
Simple and secure, the Chromebook makes getting things done in and out of the classroom, at work, or at home quick, easy, and affordable.
Chromebooks were introduced in June, 2011. In just a short time it now comprises 58% of the computers used in K-12 school classrooms.
For the parent or grandparent, this relatively inexpensive computer is far easier to use than a full featured Windows or Mac computer would be.

They're effectively impervious to viruses. They can use Voice commands: You can say "OK, Google" from the launcher to invoke Google's voice-powered assistant. There is tight integration with everything Google: Gmail, Drive, Calendar and so on. That means any document created in, say, Google Docs is automatically archived to Google Drive. It's like full-time, automatic backup for nearly everything the user does. The most recent Chromebooks can use Google Play to install almost all Android Apps that are available for phones and tablets.

[Info about the SIG]
The Virtual Chromebook SIG will be available to Computer & Technology user groups and their members. It is sponsored by The Central Florida Computer Society in Orlando, FL. CFCS is paying for the Zoom Web Conferencing Service.

The SIG will be available live to groups, individual members, and will be recorded. If the undetermined time of the live event is held when your group meets, your user group is welcome to present it to your group. If the schedule does not coincide with the live meeting, your members can access the link from home or work. If your group or your members cannot join the live meeting, the recording will be available on the SIG website.
