    Hello Carlo and Nik,
    Thank you for your OER this week!
    I really appreciate that you split up the age groups because, as a k-2 teacher, I feel like my students and my teaching experience are left out of the conversation in EdTech. It also brought back quite a bit of nostalgia with Math Blaster so thank you. (I also really appreciate the clue game and the names you picked, it made me giggle)
    I loved the Mathblast games and I seem to remember something about bugs but cannot remember what it is. I had a flashback to “type to learn” and being really fast at typing but all of my teachers were so angry that I could type very quickly without having my fingers placed in the “proper” ways, which feels like a metaphor for my whole educational experience.
    Carlo, I have to give a special shout-out to your trailer, it filled me with so much nostalgia!
    The different VR games that you suggested are so interesting and I cannot wait to implement them into my classrooms soon!
    I am still shocked when I read the figures for all of the different OERs but once again I am impressed. With a CAGR of 38.67%, I think that may be the highest yet! Your outline of the market is so comprehensive and I feel like I understand it much more than before.
    Once again, thank you for this OER. It made me think and gave such a good oversight of Game-Based Learning.
