This research was a research and development design aims to 1) develop the learning model, 2) implement the learning model and 3) propose the learning model of blended Learning using cognitive tools and infographic design process to enhance visual literacy and creativity for Art education students. The samples were 30 Art education students. The research instruments were the questionnaire, semi-structured interview form, lesson plans based on the learning model, visual literacy test, visual literacy rubric, infographic rubric. Quantitative data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test for dependent samples, and development score; qualitative data were analyzed using content analysis method.
The result found that 1) the learning model consists of three design activities: (1) Infographic Preparation, (2) Create Infographics and, (3) Publishing, and has five components: (1) Blended learning (2) Cognitive tools (3) Instructional approach of infographic design process (4) Media and learning resources and (5) assessment of learning outcomes, 2) the result from the implementation were as follows: 2.1) visual literacy posttest scores of the Art education student who studied with the blended learning model using cognitive tools and infographic design process to enhance visual literacy and creativity were significantly higher than the pretest scores at .05 level, 2.2) infographic scores of the Art education student were pass at very good level, and 2.3) students' opinions expressed after learning with the learning model was found that teaching and learning activities both in face to face and online classroom based on the learning model were beneficial to students and helped to strengthen their visual literacy, 3) the learning model validation result by 5 experts was 3.00 that appropriate level that can be used.
