I just came across this web-based show on Penny Arcade called Extra Credits, which uses simple (and entertaining) animation to explain concepts around gaming and programming. Check out the show on Gamification in Education.
There are other shows on:
- Propaganda games
- Gaming addiction
- Story structure (including a series around the Hero’s Journey idea)
- Female characters in games
- Graphics and design
- And the first steps to considering how to program
This collection from Extra Credit is all useful, and informative, and designed with a quick pace.
Peace (in the credit),
