Education is the process through which sustainable development can be achieved. Learners develop values and skills through proper guidance individually and collectively that enable to improve the quality of life. This paper addresses how teachers need to continually interrogate their practices focusing on improving outcomes of learners. Positive behaviour supports student learning and development in achieving their desired objectives. The methods involve dispositions, the key components for one’s sustainable development. The results suggest that environment with supportive autonomy versus controlling is essential for sustainability. Teachers need to cultivate appropriate positive dispositions in terms of interest, inventiveness and intensiveness. To elevate learning capacity, teachers provide challenging and appealing environments to extend student capabilities thus heightens their efficacy. Rendering the focus on research as eminently topical and pertinent which adds an importance to the existing literature through the direct focus into the classroom space with digital devices where disruption takes place.
