I was shocked to read this. Why would you not want to teach students to use Flash or equivalent software so that they can experience something of web animation in the real world? As far as I can see Fireworks doesn't allow key frames, shape and motion tweening, motion paths, filters, importing movie clips, importing sound, optimisation, control of frame rate. OCR Nationals are supposed to be industry relevant. Using Fireworks to create the most basic animation possible is surely not the intention.
