More peer-reviewed literature involving the use of learning styles to describe, explain or predict learning outcomes. This study examines how students with different cognitive styles (i.e., Holist/Serialist) react to three presentation modalities (i.e., text, text with graphic, and context) in game-based scenarios." I'm willing to gfrant the learning styles sceptics the benefit of the doubt, but at some point, other than simply repeating that "there are no such things as learning styles" they will have to explain the continued persistence of learning styles in published reserach and explain why results like this are irrelevant.
