Another starting place are the works of Martin Gardner. "Wheels, Life  
and Other Mathematical Amusements" (1983) is one of his titles.

I should also think the work of Seymour Papert (Mindstorms, 1980), and  
the whole Constructionist school of thought would be applicable. Not  
so much in terms specific computer games, but more as playing with  
computers through programming.

Lastly, "What Video Games Have to Teach us About Learning and  
Literacy" (2003), by James Gee.
