An effective learning system creates personalized contexts for each student. The 'one size fits all' concept is not very effective across a large number of diverse students. An adaptive instruction approach is more suitable for reaching large diverse groups of students in electronic learning environments. Additionally, cultural groups often share common values; the experiences of children growing up with those values are reflected in their classroom learning behaviors (i.e. cultural learning style). Therefore, a culturally relevant pedagogy is central to the academic success of minority students. The research described in this article was influenced by the compelling impact of social and cultural issues on academic performance in addition to supporting research on using gaming technology to educate. Accordingly, AADMLSS City Stroll embraces differences in cultural learning styles by providing a culturally sensitive, pedagogical environment utilizing gaming and artificial intelligence.
