  3. 3. I. IntroductionThis document provides information on the tools that are available on the Xplore Health portal for thesecond module concerning skin cancer. For each tool, we provide an ID table and explanation on howto use the tool in class and interact with the curriculum.II. The toolsThe tools that have been created for the use of teachers and students in order to help them in theirfamiliarization process of skin cancer are listed and explained below.The tables provided in this document describe each tool, provides a link to the tool and givessuggestions on how the tool can be implemented in class: pre-, during, and post-exercises.The tools are the following: 1. Virtual experiment 1: The Unusual Suspects 2. Virtual experiment 2: Investigate a suspect skin growth 3. Video 1: Early detection saves lives 4. Video 2: Skin cancer exposed 5. Video 3: Looking for genes in the lab 6. Video 4 – Skin cancer: ethical issues 7. Discussion continuum game Skin cancer exposed - 3 – Tools’ Information
  4. 4. 1. Virtual experiment 1: The Unusual Suspects Tool name Virtual experiment 1 – The Unusual SuspectLink to tool / information http://www.xplorehealth.eu/en/media/unusual-suspects on the tool Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives:Key messages: To Understand what is melanoma and its risk factors.General information on melanoma, sun rays and To use the ABCDE rule to distinguish normal molesskin anatomy. from cancerous ones.Concepts that appear: Time needed: 20 minWhat is melanoma? Process:What is a mole? Follow the activity by clicking one next button eachWhat are the causes and risk factors related to time the screen display has been done. You willmelanoma? understand what melanoma is and conditions that can cause it. The game will help you differentiate a normalHow to diagnose melanoma? - Searching for a mole from a cancerous one. You will have to click onmole complying with the ABCDE rule. what you find are suspected mole on the rolling slide.How to differentiate normal from abnormal You have to be quick since it is a time test where youmole? A game will teach you how. have 90 s to look for 30 suspected moles. A penalty is applied for each wrong answer so better be focused and well informed prior to gaming.

  5. 5. 2. Virtual experiment 2: Investigate a suspect skin growth Virtual experiment 2: Investigate a suspect skin growth Tool nameLink to tool / information http://www.xplorehealth.eu/en/media/investigate-suspect-skin-growth on the tool Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives: Understand how you detect melanoma; How you in practice remove melanoma. The students get a realistic view of the surgery involved. Process:  Discussion: what do we know about skin cancer? And it is something you would like to work with?Key message and concepts that appear:  Let students play the gameUnderstanding the characteristics of skin cancerinto details and the treatment of the same.  Discussion; Compare what you said before the game with what you know now. How has the game changed your perceptions of being a doctor and working with cancer? Time needed: 45 min. Outcomes: The students get a realistic view of how you treat skin cancer in practice, this way they get an idea of what it implies to work with cancer and surgery.

  6. 6. 3. Video 1: Early detection saves lives Tool name Video 1: Early detection saves livesLink to tool / information http://www.xplorehealth.eu/en/media/skin-cancer-early-detection-saves- on the tool lives Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives: Understand what melanoma is and how we can reduce the risk of having it by not exposing our skin directly to strung sunlight.Key messages: Time needed:Early detection of melanoma saves life, why we 30 minutesneed to protect our skin from the sun andremember to check our skin for radical changes. Process:Concepts that appear:  Watch videoThe skin is the largest organ of the body; we  Discussion:learn that skin cancer is also called melanoma.  Do we in fact take care of our skin?The video informs what melanoma is one themost frequent cancers. It also informs that  Can we protect it better and how and will besuccessful treatments require early detection. do it? Outcomes: Understanding of:  Melanoma;  The risks of getting it and the level of danger;  Knowledge of preventive actions. Skin cancer exposed - 6 – Tools’ Information

Video 3: Looking for genes in the lab Tool name Video 3 – Looking for genes in the labLink to tool / information http://www.xplorehealth.eu/en/media/looking-genes-lab on the tool Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives: Inherited disposition for melanoma cancer Prevention and diagnostic of skin cancerKey messages: Tool to support Curriculum from Biology and Nature inConcepts that appear: secondary school (Genetics & Biotechnology). - How to prevent skin cancer - The role of early diagnose of skin cancer Process: - discussion - PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) - Video observation - Gen amplification - DNA isolation Time needed: 45 minutes - Gen code comparison - Inheritance of tendency for risk cancer Outcomes: - Skin cancer family genome risk awareness - Factors increasing skin cancer risk (sunburn) Skin cancer exposed - 8 – Tools’ Information
  9. 9. 6. Video 4 – Skin cancer: ethical issues Tool name Video DECIDE – Ethical issuesLink to tool / information http://www.xplorehealth.eu/en/media/skin-cancer-ethical-issues on the tool Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives: Inherited predisposition for melanoma cancerKey messages:Concepts that appear: Prevention and diagnostic of skin cancer - How to prevent skin cancer Tool to support Curriculum from Biology and Nature in secondary school (Genetics & Biotechnology). - The role of early diagnose of skin cancer - Inheritance of tendency for risk cancer Process: - discussion - Skin cancer exposure and protection - Video observation - Individual specificity Time needed: 45 minutes - The role of skin cancer risk public information (especially sunburn) Outcomes: - Skin cancer family genome risk awareness - Factors increasing skin cancer risk (sunburn) Skin cancer exposed - 9 – Tools’ Information
  10. 10. 7. Discussion continuum game Tool name Discussion continuum gameLink to tool / information on the tool Description Activities in which this tool can be used Pedagogical objectives: Make the students have insight into the complexity of decision making when wanting to reduce incidents of cancer in a specific population. Make students train their argumentation skills on the basis of scientificConcepts that appear: factors.The students are to discuss what researchers, Process:doctors, health authorities and industry do aboutpreventing and reducing melanoma? How can  The students read all the backgroundwe prevent, diagnose and treat melanoma as informationeffective as possible?  On the basis of the background information they discuss the main questions how to prevent and reduce incidents of melanoma. Time needed: 30 min Outcomes: The students will have an idea of the process behind finding effective measures to decrease diseases. Skin cancer exposed - 10 – Tools’ Information
