Harry Beck unlocked the most complicated problem in his time. He created London underground map to what we see today. Linear, color-coded diagram, map that is not actually a map anymore. Beck’s map was revolutionary in its simplicity. I love simple lines, good architecture and design and I have always been fascinated by London underground map.
Finnish vocational education is under big changes. People involved with vocational education are invited to a change. Even though the reform seems like the most complicated problem in this time, it´s possible. We need people who want to see the result in different form that it has been.
I see reform as a possibility to create new map of education. Why not to follow Becks principles when creating new in vocational education.
- Focus, who you are doing it for
- Thinking a cross-disciplinary way
Map of the Finnish vocational education and training looks like this at the moment.
