We tend to see gaming as one all-encompassing genre under a capital "G." But within that genre, many sub-classifications will rise, thrive, endure and fail. Just as reality-based fare is among the most successful television of the last decade, it's possible that the new massive, multiplayer online games will follow a similar course. It's feasible that millions of people will soon compete in a virtual world for the right to become Donald Trump's Apprentice . Perhaps an enterprising designer will create an educational game that rivals the social significance of Sesame Street . And maybe a group of prescient developers will make a game series that allows participants to see what it's like to perform in a real-life ER .
Teachers or counselors can reinforce taught concepts in spontaneously arising situations (Knaus, 1974, 1977a, 1977b, 2004; Knaus & Haberstroh 1993). For example, asking a student to use a coping skill in a problem situation, when the student does not know the skill, is generally impractical. On the other hand, once the student has learned and practiced an REE concept, promptinga student to use a tested coping strategy, can prove productive. This application prompting method shows students that they truly do have choices in how they respond to problem situations, and can experience a sense of reward from applying a new REE taught skill.
From the point of countries, politicians will perceive the ongoing situation as a wake-up call with regard to lower birth rates, more demands on houses, and more energy consumption. Firstly, more single households mean more single persons, and the population will shrink in the wake of falling number of married couples. Secondly, more houses are required to fulfill the need of individuals, which cause cities even more densely populated. London is a famous example; the number of houses has been stimulated by 48% over the past five years, and 80% of them are for singles. Finally, the consumption of electricity and gas will soar when more people choose to live on their own, and it will further pose a threat to our livelihood.
