When remembering and recalling are the first steps

I purposely describe this topic as a ‘first step’. Sometimes as a learner you cannot get around the need to ‘know something’ through rote learning or memorization. But learners and teachers need to keep in mind that this is only a first step, one that leads to more complex learning tasks, deep learning and understanding (think of Bloom’s Taxonomy).
