The paper reports on results of the training, which was aimed at the formation of skills and habits of posing problems of different complexity levels in the course of plane geometry using the drawing as the primary source for students’ activities in problem posing process. The paper describes and analyses some tasks, which were developed to enable the researchers to look into the thinking processes used by students when they are involved in problem posing activities. The author stresses role of students’ skills to inquiry work and important features of the use of technology in the different stages of the training.
