Knowledge vs Wisdom

My student asked what is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?

My answer was:
Where knowledge is the accumulation of information, experiences and deciphered data, wisdom is the ability to understand when to use and how to abandon the acquired knowledge.

Did you see or did you choose not to see that knowledge is important only because it equips u an option to solve but can be detrimental at times for it cripples your brain based on past acquired information?
