Abstract: The benefits of using CT skills in an online learning environment are evident in many ways; however, the influence of culture on students’ CT is not clear. This paper highlights how students’ cultural backgrounds can affect the way they use CT skills through the blog in a multi-cultural society. The participants were an intact class of ESL tertiary level students from different ethnic origins: Malay, Chinese, and Indian. Students were trained to apply different CT skills in their writing through the blog. The results indicate that Malay students tended to rely more on applying CT skills than Chinese and Indians. Limitations and some directions for future research related to promoting students’ CT by using technology in a multi-cultural society are suggested.
