This proposal takes place in 3rd course of secondary education (14-15 years), the subject involves Nervous System and drugs. It's a great important issue for our society and secondary school is the right place to begin with students developing a critical view on drugs in order to prevent consumption.

With our design, students perform a research by their own and show their conclusions to other ones, peer-to-peer education. They develop computer skills by looking for information, analyzing it, highlighting the important facts and, finally, building up a slide presentation and showing it to the rest of the classes. A final discussion is performed.

The followed steps were:
a) To form heterogeneous groups of three to four students, in order to develop a collaborative work.
b) To build up a template guide of each different drug for each group. This template provides the students the guideline for performing their work. For each drug they had to find some common facts, as origin, effects and so on. Also, other items were: drug trade, therapeutic use, advertising, legalization, adulteration, rehabilitation, sociology of drugs, etc.
c) The participants decided how to split their different tasks: some looking for information, others other structuring it or performing the power-point presentation .
d) Finally, the students showed their work to their colleagues at school and answered their questions through a discussion. As questions were placed by students themselves, they were familiar to them and the used language and answers came in a similar language.

For assessing the results, students discussed first the criteria and applied later them in a both auto-assessment and co-assessment procedure. As a conclusion, this activity has been positively evaluated by all participants.
