Been reading around to try understand these two concepts procedural and declarative knowledge but it is not clear as to how they differ. How do they differ???

Declarative knowledge involves knowing THAT something is the case - that J is the tenth letter of the alphabet, that Paris is the capital of France. Declarative knowledge is conscious; it can often be verbalized.  Metalinguistic knowledge, or knowledge about a linguistic form, is declarative knowledge.

Procedural knowledge involves knowing HOW to do something - ride a bike, for example. We may not be able to explain how we do it.  Procedural knowledge involves implicit learning, which a learner may not be aware of, and may involve being able to use a particular form to understand or produce language without necessarily being able to explain it.

procedural knowledge is knowledge exercised in the performance of some task and declarative knowledge refers to factual knowledge and information that a person knows.....

Well I did some research on those two concepts and here is what I found;

*with procedural it is knowing how to do something,take for example the registration process in our school which most of us thus fourth year students are familiar with because we have been doing it for for almost four years unlike the freshmen who are new and really they don't know a lot to be able to register on their own without any assisstance 

*on the other hand that is the declarative knowledge is having knowledge about something hence the saying "knowledge is power"
