    The official London Olympics education site. You can register and join their blogging network. This is definitely something you may want to do with your students.

    The London games has a “get set” website which is their official educational platform for the Olympic games. I've just spent a little time looking at what you can do there, but you can register, blog about the games, and connect with others. This is the sort of global event where you can meet other classrooms and interact with others.
