Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

I've been teaching web design since 1994. My first class used notepad and wrote the html tags for the school website. Now there are several tools like Dreamweaver and Expression Web that can be used in class to make web design a fun task instead of a tedious one.

I've been wondering for a long time now if I should still be teaching html to my students. Normally, I've used this site for the training and I only teach them how to add text, pictures and links using html.

So what do you think? Is it worth the few weeks I spend on teaching high school students html or should I start them with Dreamweaver to create websites?

Let me know. Thanks.
