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.

It is the beginning of an automated sequence where pilots react without thinking – essential for rapid decision-making at life-threatening moments.
