The science of learning

The NY Times has an article about the science of learning.

According to the article there is no evidence for different learning styles like visual or auditory or left-brain or right-brain.
What does work is:
- alternating study environments (now in this room and then in that or even outdoors
- mixing content (a bit of this and a bit of that; this works better than first doing everything of subject A and then everything of subject B)
- spacing study sessions (today a bit, tomorrow a bit, next week a bit...)
- (self-)testing
