Don't know what age you are teaching, or if you want to use it for
yourself at first, but I can say that while the Adobe and Macromedia
products are great, the trade off is that they both have a big jump
between beginner and intermediate--but you will be teaching with what is
widely considered the industry standards, so the kids will be able to
apply their knowledge to the real world...
Hope that helps! More questions, give me a holler off-list.
