On May 6, 2020, TIME for Kids Editor Jaime Joyce joined 245 students and educators around the world to discuss how children learn while navigating challeges presented by migration and displacement. The webinar was presented by Education Coordinator, Jaya Mukherjee and Education Manager Hannah Berk. The full webinar presentation, including the images and text shared by Joyce, is available for download as a powerpoint or PDF.
Jaime Joyce is executive editor at TIME for Kids, TIME agazine's news edition for students. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Washingtonian, and on BuzzFeed and NPR, among other places. Jaime taught elementary school for seven years and holds master's degrees from Bank Street College of Education and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She lives in Brooklyn, New York and is also a four-time Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting grantee.
In her presentation, Joyce explored the resilience of children who have demonstrated a commitment to education despite the harsh conditions in refugee camps and migrant communities. Through a series of vivid photographs, videos, and stories, she took the audience on a journey from Kenya's Kakuma Refugee Camp to the Balukhali camp in Bangladesh, and finally migrant settlements in Tijuana, Mexico.
Here is what some participants wrote about the webinar in a post-webinar survey:
