Can you imagine a technological world without intimidation? It exists in a place called High Tech Land. Computer Puppets including Chip, Ram, Motherboard, and even Dr. Rebooty Sly help students of all ages comprehend abstract concepts, develop a robust level of computer understanding and provide numerous learning experiences. Students will develop a solid understanding of every component's purpose by learning from the puppets' adventures and mishaps. These loveable puppets give everyone the same opportunity to become computer literate and to understand computer science. UNLOCK TECHNOLOGY WITH THE COMPUTER PUPPETS is a spin-off of the highly recommended technology-training program, Understanding Technology with the Computer Puppets(c). This program has been used for eleven years in public and private schools and is now available in book form for at home training. No prior computer knowledge is necessary; teachers, students, parents and children can learn alongside each other with easy to use step-by-step lesson plans. It only takes 10-20 minutes a week to complete this program. Game board components as well as the four part DVD starring the Computer Puppets are available for free and can be downloaded with the purchase of this book. THE COMPUTER PUPPETS were divinely inspired when the author Rene Compton, Computer Science Major, accepted a job for a large corporation providing Help Desk support for hardware and software. It soon became apparent that even well-educated adults lack the necessary skills to adapt to the ever-changing world of technology. This book is the answer to her heart's desire to help everyone become computer literate.

John Ortberg
Today is the day you choose . . . which game you want to win, which prize you want to collect, which priorities you want to set.

It’s a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the other players and you “own” the board. It’s also a thrill to win a promotion at work … the new house you wanted … that sports car you’ve always eyed. But just like the game cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they all go back in the box.

Games can cast a powerful spell, says bestselling author John Ortberg. But the wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end. So what can we take with us to the kingdom of God? Only the love we have for Christ, the love we have for each other, and our own souls. While it’s not bad to be good at chess or Risk—or the game of life on Earth—we can’t allow it to get in the way of what really matters.

Using his humor and his genius for storytelling, Ortberg helps you focus on the real rules of the game and how to set your priorities. When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box Participant’s Guide helps explain how, left to our own devices, we tend to seek out worldly things, mistakenly thinking they will bring us fulfillment. But everything on Earth belongs to God. Everything we “own” is just on loan. And what pleases God is often 180 degrees from what we may think is important.

In the six sessions you will learn how to:

Live passionately and boldlyLearn how to be active players in the game that pleases GodFind your true mission and offer your bestFill each square on the board with what matters mostSeek the richness of being instead of the richness of having

You can’t beat the house, notes Ortberg. We’re playing our game of life on a giant board called a calendar. Time will always run out, so it’s a good thing to live a life that delights your Creator. When everything goes back in the box, you’ll have made what is temporary a servant to what is eternal, and you’ll leave this life knowing you’ve achieved the only victory that matters.

Sessions include:
