Abstract: We offer a response to the main themes arising from the commentators’ inquiries and critiques: Laying down a royal road in random walking, the causes of cognitive abuse, the binary good versus bad teaching, the role of the teacher, the limits of e-learning, the role of the body, mathematical modelling and AI exploration of problem-solving strategies.
