Book Links, the youth supplement of the American Library Association's BookList review publication, has included a number of articles in their November issue related to gaming in classrooms. Of particular note is the editors lengthy article about using board games – he is a bit of a wargaming nerd so speaks the language.
The article features a series of books that I co-authored on Teaching Through Games (Rosen Publishing, 2015 - more info at http://playplaylearn.com) and highlights play for two games discussed in the series from Academy Games, 1776 and Freedom: The Underground Railroad. An additional article that follows presents a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction for youth that feature computer gaming and/or coding as primary topics.
I thought these both might be of interest to this group.
