Connect the Dots: Who Do You Wish to Be In 2023?

Beth Holland and Sabba Quidwai Connect the Dots

This year instead of sharing one word, Dr. Beth Holland and I are asking ourselves one question:

Who do you want to be in 2023?

As we spend the year leaning into this question with curiosity and confidence we invite you to join us. Dr. Holland is in my top 5 list of education writers. Her thought-provoking questions, grounded in research, and fueled by her optimism for what’s possible make her an incredible thought partner. Last year as we reflected on the past few years, and the conversations we were seeing emerging around the latest trend with ChatGPT and other AI tools, we realized the importance of stepping back to accelerate forward.

With great enthusiasm, we share the launch of our new blog series, “Connect the Dots.” Twice a month we’ll share a post where we reflect back on research and practice. Along the way, we’ll also share journal questions to guide our reflection as we discover — or uncover — who it is that we wish to be.

I’m Sabba.

I believe that the future should be designed. Not left to chance.

Over the past decade, using design thinking practices I've helped schools and businesses create a culture of innovation where everyone is empowered to move from idea to impact, to address complex challenges and discover opportunities.

It's a question we think about often and one that today's world expects us to be comfortable with. Join me each week as I chat with educational leaders and researchers about how they navigate change with design thinking.

Work with Sabba

From keynotes to customized experiences there are a variety of ways we can work together. While many places focus on devices and apps, we focus on a creating a culture of innovation using an approach that is human-centered and technology-driven.

We use the design thinking framework and design sprints to help organizations address complex challenges and explore how to design the future of learning, today.

All of my best and life changing relationships began online. Whether it's a simple tweet, a DM or an email. It always begins and ends with the relationships we create. 

I can't wait to get to know you and discuss how might we design schools.

Instagram is my creative outlet. It's where you can see stories that take you behind the scenes and where I love having audio chats in my DM.
