Teaching is pragmatic: its effectiveness is often judged by results. If the students learn, the teaching is successful; if they don't, it is not. So the facts we must face are: there are people who simply cannot teach; and some of them refuse to acknowledge the fact. Some of those teachers without ability, know their limitations and leave the profession, generally those who survived were those who could teach and those willing to improve their skills.
A body of literature (Shulman,1987; Grossman, Wilson, & Shulman,1989; Ball, & McDiarmid, 1990; Cochran, 1993) has informed us that among the basic criteria for a teacher are: knowledge of the subject, and ability to impart it. You must know your subject well enough to teach it to impact learning. It is the unique ability of some teachers to impart their knowledge not only to the bright and disciplined students but to all including “the unteachables” that this paper is premised on.
Through this article, an attempt is made to highlight some ways on how teachers can integrate technology into their teaching repertoire to enhance the teaching learning process to make it both an enjoyable and enriching experience. Technology has several advantages: it is being used as a powerful tool by many teachers for making lesson plans and organizing learning activities, for enhancing class-room presentations by employing CD- ROMs and multimedia, assisting in skill development through practice, the test generators and electronic grade books are very resourceful in evaluating student performance, it is particularly favorable with problem based learning, it enhances cooperative interaction among students, it serves very strongly as a motivational and management tool and the assistive technologies are extremely beneficial to students with special needs. It is hoped that the guidelines outlined in this article can provide some assistance to teachers attempting to optimally combine their goals, their students' needs and the power of the Technology-enhanced class-room.
Increase in enrolment of learners at the different levels of the educational system and particularly in the south-western Nigerian universities motivates this paper. The stretched facilities, infrastructure, poor funding and attitude of stressed teachers to adoption of new technologies affect quality teaching and thus demand the attention of instructional designers. It is felt that the application of modern technologies in teaching and learning, especially the interactive instructional design packages as used in the (K12 school education) would lead to quality teaching. It was suggested that teachers' be encouraged to explore the potentials found in the information communication technologies (lCTs).

Also, this study has taken a grounded theory approach to allow the researcher to explore and discover the Turkish teachers' attitudes toward online communications. This research was conducted during the 2003-2004 school-year in Eskisehir, Turkey. The findings of this study represent 319 teachers (241 women and 78 men) who work at the K12 schools in Eskisehir.

Moral feeling, moral thinking and moral acting are aspects in Moral Education for Malaysian schools. Students are encouraged to practice what they learn within and outside the boundaries of the class room. In the year 2000, there were shift in assessing teaching and learning of Moral Education in which equal weightage were given to the cognitive/moral thinking aspect, as well as moral feeling and moral acting. This has resulted in an assessment paper for Moral Education requirement focusing upon practical work students carry out, based on themes taught in the classroom. Policy makers together with Malaysian Examination Board produced a comprehensive syllabus and formative assessment sheets to assess students involvement in the implementation of the new system. Unfortunately, at this initial stage many flaws were found and policy makers need to reassess before it becomes “settled”, given serious backfire from teachers and students concerned.
