proof in geometry

I have being working with dynamical geometry in a Euclidian Geometry
course. The environment works very well for conjecturing. But for
proving the results that are visually stable... that is another PROBLEM.

So I am interested in research results that focus on the question: how
to promote in such environment “forms of thought” which could empower
students in creating proofs. If too general , maybe some key words would
be: theorems in motion, recasting of classical theorems, reasoning
beyond indutive and deductive...
Thanks for your attention
