    Abstract
    The study aims to develop the Information-assisted problem-based learning system in a smart classroom
    environment for critical thinking skill development. The sample in this study was 30 staff purposively
    sampling from an industrial robot control department who participated in robot arm control courses. The
    duration of the study is four weeks. The statistics used in this study were means, standard deviation, and ttest.
    The study found the following. (1) The synthesised framework consists of the following parts, problem-based
    learning, Information-assisted problem solving, smart classroom, and critical thinking. (2) Model of
    Information-assisted problem-based learning system in a smart classroom environment for critical thinking
    skill development consists of seven steps: problem identification, understanding and goal setting, planning,
    data gathering, experiment, conclusion, and evaluation, respectively. The smart classroom components
    in the study were synthesised as follows, 1) interactive classroom, and 2) learning management system via
    a network. (3) The learning system developed consists of hardware used for interaction between students
    and teachers and between students and learning contents. (4) Results of the study found that the
    participants were evaluated to have a critical thinking level of pre-test mean equal to 21.73, the standard
    deviation of 3.16, and post-test mean equal to 28.03, the standard deviation of 2.01, which is higher than
    the post-test at the statistical significance of .05.
