As you point out in the text this is as well a pro (easy fast solving of small unitary tasks) as a con (bad reusability, bad code when doing big projects).

But as Learning of course starts with doing small unitary tasks RAD obviously is a great help to fight the FUD and prejudice the students might have regarding programming.

Of course it's great to dedicate a (later) lesson to un-RAD-ing your code in order to be prepared for bigger tasks.
