Mr. Chiu believes in learning by doing, and seeks to empower independent and collaborative learning through engaging, practical projects. Developing a strong technical understanding and ability is important within the field of computing, but so is the ability to listen, empathise and design solutions that make for meaningful human experiences. Mr. Chiu believes that through the process of authentic, lifelong learning we develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and a greater sense of identity.
Outside of the classroom, Mr. Chiu connects educators and industry seeking opportunities for collaboration and growth. In his personal time, Mr. Chiu can be found volunteering in local community projects, playing music, practicing circus skills, playing football and travelling the world. In 2018-19, Mr. Chiu travelled with his family across South America and Antarctica for 9 months. The valuable experiences and connections gained are regularly brought into his everyday teaching practice.
