Abstract

This study aims to develop a model of constructivist-based blended learning to increase critical thinking skills. Constructivist-based blended learning was developed through literature studies to create a model syntax that is compatible with critical thinking skills characteristic. The test was conducted internally to obtain learning model validity. Validity model was carried out through assessment of expert judgment and focus group discussion (FGD). Five experts in the field of instructional model and media were involved in expert judgment process, and ten participants were involved in FGD process. The results of this study stated that constructivist-based blended learning models to increase critical thinking skills have high validity. The result of statistical test showed a significance value of 0.000 < α, with an α significance level of 5% (0.05). The result indicated that there was a positive effect on critical thinking skills through the implementation of the constructivist-based blended learning model.
