This video was fantastic!!! Other teachers asked to use the video after hearing my students talk about the video in their classes! You consistently make available to teachers high quality video resources but this video is a grand slam and a half!

2081 is the best video I have ever used in my 11 years of teaching! The students have shown tremendous interest in the content and they constantly make connections with other content areas. 2081 is a great tool for cross-curricular teaching in my building.

I was amazed at how my students responded. They were enthralled with the video. The abstract nature of the video kept the students attention and generated many questions after. The next day, my students wanted to discuss the ideas in the video more. Many students shared information with their parents. I even received requests from parents to borrow the video! My students begged for more.

This is prehaps the best video Izzit offers. I used this in a junior and senior Sociology course two days ago and it is still generating discussion! Well done, this video is a must have for any teacher of Social Studies.

This video was very enlightening to my students who have been labeled "disabled." They realize that they have disabilities, but that they are as important as any one else. They also realize that they have much to offer the world.

My students loved 2081, and I truly feel it enriched our conversations. The short story itself generated a mountain of questions, and in conjunction with this short video and it's slightly different portrayal of characters and events, a huge discussion about Harrison's motives and the themes of the pieces ensued without my prompting. Thank you for this teaching and learning opportunity.

Amazing video. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I showed it to my own children at home to preview it and then shared it with my 3 Senior English classes. Wow! The response was wonderful. The video matches the short story very well and the questions that the kids came up with were intense. They were completely enthralled. Thanks so much for this great resource!

This video was absolutely fantastic. My students were fully engaged while watching and then during the class discussion. The video really encourages higher order thinking. It was hard to get them to stop talking about it even the following day. They keep asking if I have any other movies like it!

It is rare for me to say that a movie is better than a book, but in this case I believe it is true. The video has a greater impact on students and is more focused on the message than the short story on which it is based. It is a great variation that adds more meaning and depth to the story.
