Welcome to the launch of the EC Premium Content Insider! Each month we will release the latest and greatest content and providers that have gone live on our platform. We will share insights into schools that we work with and staff member successes. You’ll get to know us, our team, and our passion and pride for creating quality teacher professional learning.

This month our focus is on wellbeing. Student, staff, social and cyber wellbeing, with quality content partners teaching educators how to be mindful and safe in the workplace and online.

Our wellbeing is vital to our ability to thrive in the workplace. And, just as importantly, for our students to learn. In this issue, we are spotlighting partners who we believe are shining the light on how to be safe and well at school and in an online workplace or learning environment.
