The primary goal of every organization is to achieve and maintain effectiveness and efficiency. Education industry has its set goals and objectives which were introduced by the early education managers (missionaries) through the exercise of oratory power which produced dull students in the classroom. Innovations in Nigerian education system have made obsolete the age long method of talk-n-chalk in the classroom by ushering in the use of instructional materials for retention and concretization. This paper therefore, examined the meaning of management, instructional materials, and teaching and learning. It also identified the use of educational media as a critical factor for effective teaching and learning. The paper finally recommended supervision of instruction and in-service training of administrators and teachers for quality instructional delivery.
