This paper focuses on a human resource development strategy that is related to the inculcation of positive attitude, good moral and ethical values and attitude reengineering for the development of an industrialised society. People can develop positive attitude toward things and ways of thinking through effective teaching and learning practices. Teachers must have the right attitude of effective role in improving the quality of learning among school children. To sustain interest in learning, teachers need to be enthusiastic, energetic, informed and thoughtful. 'Smart teachers' would utilise their environment to make teaching exciting and learning fun and meaningful. The use of technology e.g. the computers can improve students' behaviour along with their attitude toward themselves and toward learning. It is imperative that nations develop programs to inculcate positive habits, attitudes and values of the people because those traits are vital for social and economic growth as they determine whether the people will be motivated to achieve and sustain the progress.
