How To Incorporate a Think + Do = Solve Learning Approach

Have you ever tried learning something solely by watching a video? Or listening to an instructor? 

Chances are, you have. And you’ve also probably come to the realization that these types of “learning” aren’t very effective. After all, studies have shown when students sit and listen intently but passively in a lecture-style environment, they retain only 20% of the presented information. But when they’re given the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning, that percentage increases to 75%

That’s why more schools are pulling away from traditional lecture-hall-style classrooms and leaning more towards collaborative environments that support active learning. At Diversified Spaces, many of our products are designed to complement a hands-on learning approach, or what we like to call a think + do = solve learning approach. 

What Is a Think + Do = Solve Learning Approach? 

A think + do = solve learning approach encompasses both the traditional style of learning as well as hands-on learning that allows students to “solve” a problem or put something they learned into practice. Let’s break down the think + do = solve to better understand how to incorporate it into a learning environment: 


The “think” part of a think + do = solve learning approach speaks towards the traditional way of learning – an instructor-led classroom where students face the front. While this is an important aspect of the think + solve = do learning approach, there are limitations to this learning if nothing follows. As mentioned earlier, students will only retain 20% of the presented information in a lecture-style environment. Plus, another study found that undergraduate students with traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that use more stimulating, so-called active learning methods. That’s why it’s important to follow the “think” part of this learning approach with “do.”


The “do” part of a think + do = solve learning approach involves reinforcing instructor-led learning through active or hands-on learning. This type of learning gets you into an active state where both your brain and body remember what you did. As a result (and as mentioned earlier), students retain 70% of information through hands-on learning compared to only the 20% they retain through lecture-style learning. 


Combining “think” (instructor-led learning) and “do” (hands-on learning) allows students to “solve,” or put theory into practice to achieve what they are looking/solving for.  

Using the Think + Do = Solve Learning Approach

Believe it or not, many instructors have already put the think + do = solve learning approach into practice. For example, let’s take a look at an art teacher describing a technique on how to paint a tree. Most art instructors will describe the technique first so students can get a better understanding (think). The students will then grab their own canvases and paintbrushes to begin practicing that technique on their own and with their peers (do). As a result, the combined result is a beautiful tree painted using the technique taught by the instructor (solve). 

Products that Support A Think + Do = Solve Learning Approach

At Diversified Spaces, we have many products that support a think + do = solve learning approach. One of our most notable products is our Forward Vision™ Workstation. While our Forward Vision™ Workstations have been a science lab staple for years, they can easily be used in all types of environments. These workstations are designed to allow up to four students to face the instructor for direction, then move to their individual stations to collaborate and experiment together. These units bring flexibility and mobility to a whole new level, while still providing easy access to all the tools and equipment, making it the perfect product to complement a think + do = solve learning approach.  

We also have many other products available to help support a think + do = solve learning approach in the classroom. If your learning space needs a little refresh to support this type of learning, we can help.

The Importance of Career & Technical Education (CTE) in Schools

Meeting 21st-century skilled workforce demands has become a challenge in the United States. According to a ManpowerGroup survey from 2021, talent shortages in the U.S. have more than tripled in the last ten years, with 69% of employers struggling to fill positions, up from just 14% in 2010.

So, how can we address this ongoing issue? 

One of the most effective ways is through implementing Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in schools. 

What is CTE?

The main goal of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for future careers and secondary education. Most programs offer a variety of learning opportunities that touch many different industries, including STEM, healthcare, IT, business, and more.

Benefits of CTE

If you’re considering incorporating a CTE program into your school or district, here are several key benefits to take into account: 

  1. Higher graduation rates.

Students who actively participate in a CTE program are more likely to graduate. In fact, the average high school graduation rate in 2012 for CTE students was 93%, compared to the national average of 80%. 

How so? Well, CTE programs help students see the value of a good education. These programs use real-life applications so students and easily apply them to future career interests. As a result, they are more engaged and invested in their learning and education, making them more likely to graduate.

  1. Exploration of high-demand career options.

Many students who graduate or are close to graduating are unsure of what to do with their future. But incorporating a CTE program into their educational pathway will provide them more opportunities to explore a variety of career paths through hands-on learning and real-world experience. These real-world experiences can include automotive students fixing cars, welding students learning how to build parts or every young adult learning how to prepare a meal in FACS class. This type of exploration gives students an understanding of what interests them, providing a clearer path to their future career goals. 

  1. Teaches technical and employability skills.

Research shows that CTE programs not only teach students the technical skills needed to do a particular job but also those “soft” skills that are essential in today’s workforce. These soft skills include problem-solving, teamwork, time management, communication, critical thinking and more. 

Plus, CTE programs equip many students with applicable certifications and credits that put them one step closer to attaining their career goals. In 2017, 70% of high school graduates earned at least one credit in CTE. 

Incorporating CTE In Your School District

Receiving Funding

One of the biggest sources of funding for CTE programs is the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins Act). The Perkins Act offers many incentives for school districts that provide opportunities for students to participate in career-based learning and earn industry-recognized certificates.

Designing Learning Spaces for CTE Instruction

While a “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t usually work with CTE learning spaces, flexibility and adaptability are the main ingredients to a successful space for CTE instruction. 

The first step to ensuring flexibility and adaptability are at the forefront of your design is to choose the right furniture for the space. 

At Diversified Spaces, we offer furniture specifically designed to meet the needs of the most common skilled learning spaces.

4 Classroom Design Tips for Back to School

Did you know? Classroom design can greatly impact how both students and teachers engage in a learning environment. In fact, one study found that the physical space of schools can positively (or negatively) affect a student’s academic performance by as much as 25% in one school year

So, how do you design a learning environment that is both functional and boosts learning performance? Check out these classroom design tips that you can utilize before students head back to school.

1. Create a collaborative space. 

Think of a typical classroom: individual desks and chairs facing the front of the room toward the teacher. It’s probably similar to the classrooms you were used to growing up. But as the years have gone by, we’ve come to the realization that students need to be taught more than just facts. Collaboration has actually been identified as one of four skills students need to excel in 21st-century careers. Students need to be able to communicate well and work together to solve problems, and our classrooms need to reflect that. 

So, how do you create a functional and collaborative space? It all starts with choosing the right type of furniture. Realistically, collaborative learning spaces should accommodate all types of learning: independent one-on-one learning, small group learning and large group learning. That’s why we recommend easy-to-move, mobile furniture. Choosing mobile furniture will allow you to easily transition between group and independent learning. Students should also have access to a variety of seating options

2. Be strategic about your color choices. 

Color is one of the most important elements of a great classroom design. Believe it or not, colors aren’t just for looks. By adding certain colors to a learning space, you can capture attention, increase alertness, create calmness and even improve learning!

For example, orange accent furniture and decor will enhance the creativity, inspiration and mood of students. Learn how other colors affect classroom learning.

3. Make the most out of natural light. 

The benefits of incorporating natural light into a learning space are endless. One of the biggest advantages of natural light is that it improves learning performance! According to California Energy Commission's Public Interest Energy Research, classrooms with the most daylight had a 20% better learning rate in math and a 26% improved rate in reading compared to classrooms with little or no daylight. 

Natural light can also improve students’ overall health! Studies show that natural light boosts your body’s vitamin D storage, aids in healthy eye development and even improves your mood. 

With all these benefits, it’s a no-brainer that natural light should be incorporated into a classroom design. Working with a classroom that doesn’t have windows? Learn how to make the space more inviting and bright.

4. Add room for technology. 

It’s no secret that technology plays a crucial role in today’s society – especially when it comes to learning. More and more teachers are leveraging technology as a tool to stimulate curiosity and inspire students’ desire to learn. Technology isn’t going away – it’s going to continue to grow and evolve. That’s why it’s important to allow for integration within your classroom design.

Lab Safety Equipment Every Science Classroom Needs

Science is an excellent opportunity for students to engage in hands-on learning through fun and exciting experiments. But while it's a great space for students to collaborate and learn, they will most likely be handling dangerous chemicals and equipment at the same time. Therefore, it's imperative always to keep safety in mind, regardless of which experiments students conduct.

Here's a list of must-have lab safety equipment every science classroom needs to ensure a safe environment. 

1. Safety Stations

Accidental exposure to chemicals can happen – especially in the lab. That's why students need easy access to lab safety equipment like safety showers and eyewash stations for decontamination. At Diversified Spaces, we have an all-in-one Safety Station that has a built-in shower and eyewash station. It also features storage for other safety equipment like fire blankets, spill kits, first aid kits and fire extinguishers. 

2. First Aid Kits

Students should have access to several first aid kits throughout the lab in an emergency. These kits should include bandages, scissors, tweezers, hand sanitizer, antibiotic ointment and more! Teachers should also remember to keep the kits stocked throughout the school year. While you can keep a first aid kit in our Safety Station as we mentioned previously, we also have First Aid Cabinets available to stock additional supplies. After all, it's better to have too many first aid kits than not enough!

3. Chemical Fume Hoods

If students are experimenting with chemicals of any kind, it's crucial to have a chemical fume hood. Fume hoods protect students from inhaling dangerous chemicals by drawing in vapors, gases and dust before ventilating them out of the lab. Our Chemical Fume Hood takes safety to the next level with Smart-light communication – a soft band of light that lets you know the unit is operating safely. 

4. Safety Goggles

Safety goggles are probably one of the most critical pieces of lab safety equipment! Why? They protect one of the most sensitive parts of a student – their eyes – from hazardous chemicals and materials. If you haven't decided on what type of safety goggles to purchase, consider our Flexible Goggles. Our goggles feature indirect vents that protect against liquids, dust and smoke while permitting indirect ventilation. The UV-absorbing polycarbonate lenses are also anti-fog! 

5. Fire Extinguishers

There's always a risk of fire when dealing with hazardous chemicals. That's why it's essential (and required) to stock the lab with fire extinguishers … and with the correct ones too! After all, if the right extinguisher isn't used, it may fail to put out the fire or make it worse. Discover which type of fire extinguisher your science lab needs. 

6. Fire Blankets

While nobody ever intends for their clothes to catch on fire, there's always a chance it may happen. If this incident occurs, make sure several blankets are on-hand. Students and teachers can use these blankets to either smother fires or wrap around a student whose clothes have caught on fire. 

7. Lab Coats

Lab coats will make students feel like young scientists, but they will also help prevent dangerous liquids and chemicals from contacting their skin. Even though lab coats are designed to prevent chemicals from soaking through, they should be immediately removed if a spill occurs. As an extra safety tip, lab coats should also be buttoned closed!

8. Chemical Storage Cabinets

Although handling hazardous chemicals should be done with care, they must also be stored correctly when not in use. There are many great safety benefits to keeping chemical storage cabinets in the lab. They help prevent chemical leaks from damaging property or causing injury, keep chemicals organized and in the correct place, and prevent unauthorized access. At Diversified Spaces, we have a variety of different chemical storage cabinets depending on the needs and chemicals. 

While having all of this lab safety equipment available in a science classroom is the first step to ensuring safety, it's still not enough! Students also need to keep safety their number one priority. Establish a set of general laboratory safety rules to encourage them to practice safety. 

Contact us today to discover how we can help provide lab safety equipment to help maintain a safe laboratory environment for both students and teachers.
