  • It gives people more time to study after nightfall. See for more information on lighting, and for practical technologies to help meet this need.
  • The type of lighting is claimed in the effect that different kinds of lighting have on the learning environment. Boys and Homework, by educational consultant Ian Lillico from BoysForward.com, recommends: "Try to ensure his room has no fluorescent lights, as these are disastrous to boys' learning. An incandescent light and preferably the low voltage 12V Quartz Halogen down lights are the best for giving atmosphere."[verification needed]
