Over belang van basiskennis -Blog David Didau
For the record, here is what I believe:
1.Knowledge is transformational. You cant think about something you dont know. Once you know a thing it becomes possible to think about it. The thinking, in whatever fo...rm it takes, is a skill.

3.Procedural knowledge (knowledge of how to do things, or skills) is also important but is meaningless without propositional knowledge to apply it to.
4.Teaching procedural knowledge instead of, or separately from, propositional knowledge is of very limited use because most procedural knowledge only applies to specific domains. Whilst it may well be true that drama is great for developing resilience in drama, it not much use for developing resilience (or critical thinking) in, say, maths.
