In the same vein as the Games in Ed post. Collecting these here for future reference.
IF Activity Ideas
My interest in serious games/meaningful play, and games in second language education in general has grown over the past few years, so I figured I’d start putting together this collection of useful resources I come across on the subject.

I decided that with all of the animated GIFs being posted to DS106, I would try my hand at creating a Cinemagraph, which is a specific form of animated GIF, described as “somewhere between a still photograph, and a video”.
