This paper discusses the effectiveness of mediated instructional strategies in culturally and linguistically diverse learning environments, focusing on the use of computer-mediated instruction and its relationship to various learning styles. It examines learning style dimensions and reviews related literature on the relationship between computer-mediated instruction and cognitive style dimensions and academic outcomes for students. The paper discusses presentation strategy and academic achievement, presentation strategy and time on task, cognitive style and time on task, cognitive style and academic achievement, teaching in a linguistically diverse culture, instructional strategies and learning styles, learning styles and culture, ethnolinguistic instruction and learning, multicultural education, globalization of institutional curricula, and multicultural teaching strategies and learning styles. It concludes that culturally relevant curricula and instructional techniques should relate experientially and personally to the cognitive, academic, social, and linguistic abilities of students, and that learning traits and window presentation strategies should be considered in text reading, computer-mediated instructional development, instruction, and software design.
