Using the SPARK Framework with ChatGPT

Created & authored by Dr. Sabba Quidwai at

The rapid acceleration of artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming our world, and the emergence of chatbots like ChatGPT, and the integration of AI into Microsoft with Co-Pilot and others is a testament to this revolution. As we witness these groundbreaking advancements, schools have a critical role to play in preparing learners for a future that is already here.

As AI rapidly advances and becomes an integral part of our daily lives, we must adapt our educational systems to foster the skills and mindsets required to thrive in this new landscape. Now, more than ever, we need to embrace change and adopt innovative problem-solving approaches like design thinking, to reshape education and unlock the full potential of our learners with the skills that make us uniquely human.

While using ChatGPT can be great for writing emails, and automating our mundane tasks, it presents a larger opportunity to have a thought partner to solve challenges with, and design strategies for turning ideas into impact.

We've created a framework called SPARK for designing effective prompts with ChatGPT and other generative AI tools.


When thinking about your role, what do you want to be known for?

What you hear people respond with are the qualities that make us uniquely human. Traits like being a mentor, being reliable, being mission-driven as a leader, and being a role model for the values of the organization.

This question was inspired by the book Atomic Habits, and it has been an incredibly powerful question that sparks a connection in the audience as people reconnect and reflect on who they want to be.

SPARK Ideas with AI

The SPARK framework was designed to help people reconnect with their hopes and dreams. Individuals and teams can use this to guide them through the process of identifying and solving problems by creating a clear, concise, and compelling narrative around a specific issue or challenge.


Always begin by confirming any method you use with the chatbot. In this example, we will use ChatGPT. This is the case for any method or strategy, always confirm what it knows.

I also want you to remember this framework and use it to help me design a solution.

  1. Situation: Define the current situation or context that needs to be addressed.

  2. Problem: Identify the problem or challenge that needs to be solved.

  3. Aspiration: Describe the desired outcome or goal that you want to achieve.

  4. Result: Explain the specific, measurable results that will be achieved through your solution.

  5. Kismet: Share an element of surprise
