    Abstract: This session will cover digital pedagogy with practical examples drawn from the Just in Time Teaching, Flipped Learning, and Blog Journaling pedagogical approaches. These will be demonstrated by showing how Google Apps (Blogger, Docs, Forms, Google+ Communities, Google Groups, and YouTube) together with an RSS Reader (Feedly) can accomplish these ideas in an easy to manage way, even for teachers new to educational technology. After the overview and demonstration of this theory, the session will become more hands on and the instructors will go on to work directly with attendees on how to set up and using all these apps in this way. This section will be followed by a presentation and discussion on TPACK and how this approach can help teachers utilise the Google Apps above in varying subjects and types of classes. The entire session will end with a more formal Q and A session, although attendees are free to ask questions throughout the session.
