ABSTRACT: 

During the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia, learning implements online. Various learning models support online learning activities to develop critical thinking. This research study explicitly describes the practicality of the Critical Thinking Cycle (CTC) model, which is implemented online through zoom and google classroom platforms. Respondents were 60 pre-service science teachers on first-year. Observation, questionnaires, and interview were used in this descriptive study to obtain data and information about learning activities, learning experiences, and perceptions during the implementation of CTC learning to train students’ dispositions and critical thinking skills. The study results show that the online CTC model, which consists of six activities, can be practically implemented with the help of zoom and google classroom to develop students’ disposition and critical thinking skills. Practicality is: (1) the learning experience of the CTC model can be carried out and developed; (2) the student acitivity and positive perceptions to the six phases of the CTC model; and (3) there are no obstacles during online learning assisted by the zoom platform and google classroom. Research can optimize the educational platform to develop critical thinking.
