The Best Apps for Watching TV on your iPad | Mac|Life | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

With your Mac you can catch full episodes of shows from broadcast and basic cable networks, usually a day after the original air date. Better yet, plenty of sites offer weird, wild, web-only material, with no restrictions except the boundaries of good taste--if that! Here are some of our favorite places to catch some online TV time."

Working on the iPad lets students have some interesting virtual art experiences without the need for storage, mess, and in some cases dangerous tools."
