As the voting progressed, it was very funny to see that mythological characters, like Hercules and Spartaco are so interesting for students. I think they are enjoying the project and would like to play a game, which will happen soon;)
Not surprising: as digital natives, they mainly use the Internet to gather information.
They also comment that they are learning about their own country and others. The activity is also enriching because it has allowed them to compare different visions of heroes on media, books, offcial history...
As a whole, I think we are in the right direction. Probably task 2 will increase their motivation since it deals with closer heroes.
