About Tellagami

Tellagami is an app that allows your students to create a short 30 second voice message using an animated character. This voice message is called a gami. The best thing is that the app is available for both Apple and Android devices.

Teacher Review

Students will love to create book talks using Tellagami.  After reading a book, they can write down a short script telling why someone else should read their book.  It can be also used to retell stories and present your research facts about different famous people.

Since the clip is a short 30 seconds, it will teach your students that they need to write a script and rehearse what they are going to say before they hit record.  It's great for modeling the importance of revising and editing before the final draft.


There are two benefits in using Tellagami for writing.  First students will be incredibly motivated to complete their drafts. Secondly, Tellagami also offers the option of inputting text for the avatar to read aloud.  Students can chose a voice from several male and female options. This made the app accessible to students of all abilities and comfort levels.

There are all kinds of educational activities that can be done with Tellagami.
  • Draw a self-portrait and record a bio-poem. Embed in a blog or combine all to form a class video.
  • Add your own Tellagami to your blog as an introduction to your class.
  • Students can use it to introduce themselves at the beginning of the year.
  • Add images of landforms and describe.
  • Our kindergarteners make a display of a planet during their solar system unit. They could take a photo of their project then tell what they have learned. Combine into a class video.
  • Use for foreign language practice – take picture of vocabulary learned and tell about it in another language.
