Today's students are incredibly lucky. From laptop note-taking to textbook-buying apps, innovations for the modern student abound. It was barely 15 years ago that some schools didn't have Internet access -- or even computers, for that matter.

Now, however, technology for students is a given, and you can also expect other innovations, such as student dining deliveries, social media scholarships and convertible workspaces, to make students' lives even easier. Even the learning curriculum has changed. Courses in social media, the environment and even crisis preparation are more prevalent than they have ever been.

Check out this list of innovations for the modern student, which includes everything from live webcam networking to digital chalkboard scanners, to find out what is helping shape the minds of tomorrow's leaders.
