Abstract: 
Critical thinking becomes an essential competency for people in the new
information age. The purpose of this research is to investigate to what extent writing online
reflections using weblogs can promote students’ critical thinking. This research is conducted
in a secondary school. After completing 3 weblogs, a focus group interview was conducted to
collect their feedback on the design and implementation of the research. The results showed
that the students liked the way of writing online reflections. They attempted to make the
weblogs interesting, convincing and logical. Also, they liked to view others’ reflections and to
give comments. This paper presents the formative evaluation processes and results of the
research.
