Abstract
In 2016, Maker became a hot spot in the field of educational technology. Countries around the world has paid special attention to the development of makers and innovations, and Maker Education also developed rapidly with the continuous advancement of cutting-edge technology and the renewal of people's educational concepts. The theoretical researches and applications related to it are also increasing. Virtual experimental technology has developed stably in recent years and has been widely used in all aspects of education and teaching. The application of virtual experiment technology in the field of Maker Education can not only solve the existing problems of Maker Education, but also promote the development of Maker Education in the future. This paper analyzes the related literatures and cases of virtual experiment technology and the development of maker education in recent years. Taking the application of virtual experiment in maker education as the starting point, the existing problems of maker education, the application status of virtual experiment in maker education as well as analysis of application principles and application examples are analyzed, finally the paper puts forward their own ideas for the application prospects of virtual experiments in the field of maker education. Therefore, the researches in this paper can provide a useful reference for the future development model of Maker Education.
