Jump into the Creativity Pool

Our national broadcaster has recently launched a new collaborative social media space called Pool. A site that could be a very useful resource for schools.

Creative Commons Australia had the following to say about Pool.
Australia’s iconic public broadcaster, the ABC, has just launched a new CC-friendly social media space, Pool, designed to provide a “place for creative content makers to upload their work, publish and collaborate.”

Pool lets creators working in all mediums - from animation, to music, to video, to text - share and broadcast their work to others. Like most participatory media sites, users can create profiles, upload and download material, and search tags for related material. But unlike other popular sites, the focus at Pool is very clearly on quality and experimentation.
