We looked earlier at the difference between declarative and procedural knowledge. Creative thinking operates tangentially to these. Creative moments are likely to occur once pupils have assimilated enough information to allow them to think in such a way as to make new connections, or develop new insights. As Runco (2003, p320) notes: In Piagetian terms, assimilation is the key to creative thinking. It is there that the individual takes liberties with information. Assimilation involves a level of mastery of the domain, and so knowledge, once assimilated, has the potential to be used in novel ways.

Rehearsal builds muscles in the brain and the brain remembers this much more effectively when flying and operating an aircraft. It is the beginning of an automated sequence where pilots react without thinking – essential for rapid decision-making at life-threatening moments.
