Engagement in problem posing activities is among the significant activities of teaching and learning mathematics. This engagement might become richer when technology is involved. In this paper, we describe the experience of teachers who were engaged in problem posing within a dynamic geometry environment, present some of their works, and discuss the prominent issues that emerged as a result of their experience.
