🎧 Empathy-Powered Education - Dr. Sabba Quidwai

We have the agency to create the future of education. Sabba Quidwai explores the importance of empathy to create change and the need for humans behind technology.

Dr. Sabba Quidwai sparks innovation by building empathy. As the founder of Designing Schools, she is an educator, podcaster, and educational movie star who helps schools build trust and reimagine what education can be.

In this episode, she reminds us that we have the agency to create the future, and it starts with asking ourselves who we want to be. We explore how educators can balance the macro and micro worlds of technology and classroom instruction, and how to encourage them to take agency in their teaching practice.

Quidwai shares the importance of empathy, building trust and relationships with colleagues, and instilling psychological safety in organizations to enable change. Ultimately, this empathetic foundation will enable teachers to better take risks and prepare their students.

This conversation is a great reminder of the "humans in the loop" in all technology and the human needs that underpin cultural change.
