The big issue with teaching using a RAD tool, is welding the program logic
into the onclick events, instead of decoupling the logic in separate
procedures that can be reused elsewhere.
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.
