Tellagami is a mobile app that lets you create and share a quick animated video called a Gami. These Gamis consist of a 90 second recording of a voice to send a great message!
Anyone can customize an avatar speaker with clothes, hair and eye color, face shape, and even tone of voice! A background image can be added with writing tools to write additional messages or drawings.
Tellagami is excellent for anyone to use! It can be used for different projects, interventions, and ideas including:
- Sending get well wishes, greetings, or special messages from siblings and other family members
- Medical Play Education
- Role Play/Drama therapy
- Pretend Play
- Guess Who games
- Speech and Communication Development
I have used Tellagami with students in the classroom to discuss character building and descriptions. Students have also used Tellagami for teaching subjects in the classroom as well.
