"we give the valence of good or bad or destructive to it"
what's the meaning of VALENCE in this sentence?
In dictionary, there are only two uses:
1) a measure of the power of atoms to combine together to form compounds.
2) a narrow piece of cloth that hangs from the edge of a shelf or from the frame of a bed to the floor.

Hi Simon.
I look for the tapescrip of listening lessons on your web. Please give me infomation about it. Thanks

Dear brian kim and RR,

I think valence(=valance) means: "The degree of attraction or aversion that an individual feels toward a specific object or event - as a 'psychology' term."

Video games are very interesting, powerful and fairly new area of media to consider. One of the really interesting things from a developmental sense is that they are arguably the best teaching tool we have, the best technologically-based teaching tool we have in the sense that you are not only being exposed to situations and people and concepts the way you are on the television or movies but you are an active player in them. You actively drive the narrative and you make decisions and choices and moves that will then change the direction of what's going on. What that means, of course, this is a century of virtual reality that you are immersed in an environment with a set of conditions that you are asked by the game play to behave in certain ways. If you do it really well, you get rewarded, you also get more complicated and interesting narratives. If you do it badly, you get punished. So you are inside what psychologists call behavioral scripts. And behavioral script is how we learn anything. It's how we learn to say please and thank you; it's how we learn to please our parents and to do well in school. But if you're in environment where, for example, you are learning how to play soccer well, it will help you learn soccer strategy, it will help you kick a ball, it will help you think about how you play the game. If you're in game where you're poaching the war over the power of the weapon and your job is to kill them before they kill you, you will get better at that.
So, it's really a content driven. With video games, the medium itself is neutral. We gave the valence of good or bad or destructive to it. Unfortunately, the most popular video games even among very young kids are the ones that reward you for doing violence against others.
