a thread is a series of instructions. a pool, is basically where the computer "stores" a bunch of commonly used threads until it is ready for them. A CPU has 4 threads, a, b c, and d. It will store b, c, and d in a "thread pool" while it is running thread "a". when it is done with "a" it will pull out the next set of instructions.
That definition, is as basic as it gets, probably not 100% accurate and ill probably get strangled by some techy for it, but thats the best way I know of describing it.
