Ask participants if they have questions before completing the session.

To encourage discussion, you may wish to ask general questions about the material, including: - What feature did you like most about Tails? - What feature did you like least? Was there one that just didn’t seem useful for your situation? - Was there a feature that you wished it had? - Would you recommend Tails to colleague or friend?

You may also wish to ask specific questions to make sure some concepts are clearly understood.

Some examples that may help include: - When I first install Tails, can I save documents to it? - What do I need to do before I can save files or settings? - What are the ways I can use Tails to access and store sensitive materials?
