Abstract—COVID-19 outbreak has changed the education system worldwide including in Indonesia. Face-to-face learning must be transformed into online learning. This might not be difficult for those who were familiar with technology, but it became a big problem for those who were very poor in technology. Many things have been done by educators to overcome the problems they experienced during the pandemic because the distance between students and teachers in carrying out learning activities could not achieve optimal learning objectives. This study was conducted to design an effective learning model for both online and offline learning to improve students’ critical and creative thinking skills by integrating the phases of learning which include Communicating, Inquiring, Networking, Teaching, and Applying (CINTA). This CINTA learning model was developed to enable teachers to coordinate and network during the learning activities. The results showed that the CINTA learning model could develop students' critical and creative thinking skills in the learning process. This model provides students with the opportunity to be creative in learning and to develop their critical thinking skills. Furthermore, this study implies that educators should consider implementing this learning model in the classroom to improve students’ critical thinking skills.

Index Terms—Critical thinking, communicative, learning model.
