Question Air-dry clay or unfired ceramic clay

I will be teaching a clay class for kids at a local art center. The program director said we would be using air-dry clay but the other art teacher said that just meant the kids would use ceramic clay that was air dried rather than fired (there is no kiln at the art center). Is there a difference between air-dry clay and unfired ceramic clay? The other teacher likes ceramic clay better and says it's more durable and gives kids the experience in working with real clay even though it can't be fired. I have worked with both fired ceramic clay and air-dry clay. I have read of some very cool things you can do with air-dry clay such as adding beads, feathers, etc. as well as applying gesso to the air dried piece and then painting with watercolor or coloring with markers. Can you do these things with unfired ceramic clay as well?
